Corippo- Giuseppe Mondada. 1975 p. 14.
This keep sake of a book about Corippo by Giuseppe Mondada is evidential proof of the old saying. Perhaps it was once first spoken with assimilated Italianated English by a now forgotten Corippian: good things come in small packages. Filled with interesting details and many wonderful black and white photos, its one to savor in pieces, paragraphs like the one here. Like the stone walks and the vigorous climb of Corippo, here you might pace yourself and breath in the beauty.
The translation to English is again not very comprehensible. The paragraph talks, if I understand it correctly, about the long tradition of free roam grazing of animals in Corippo. Over the past 500 years give or take, old world charm just might meet you in the form of a goat on the path or stone steps.
