    Giardini d Bassano.

    by Maurizioago Updated Nov 20, 2014

    Every year, around the end of april or at the beginning of may; several small gardens are created at various areas of Bassano del Grappa. These are made by various local gardeners and by florists.

    The gardens are on the spots for four weeks, so that visitors can vote for their favourite one. The garden that gets more votes (or better...its creator) win a prize. This contest is named Cesoie d' Oro (transl. golden shears)

    Glory to our Alpines! W GLI ALPINI!

    by Kajron Written Feb 27, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My grandfather was a great Alpines. He suffered a lot things of war, he saw many cruel things, he won death many times, he saved a lot of people, but not his brother, whom desperately took on his shoulder from Albania to Italy, but he died during the travel in Istria....

    Shame to Italy which doesn't have gratitude to this army.

    here one of the songs of these valorous men the ALPINES: GLI ALPINI.

    Sul Ponte di Bassano

    Eccole che riva
    ste bele moscardine
    son fresche e verdoline
    colori no le ghe n'ha.

    Colori no ghe n'avemo
    e gnanca no ghe ne serchemo
    ma un canto noi ti faremo
    al pointe de Bassan.

    Sul ponte di Bassano
    là ci darem la mano
    là ci darem la mano
    e un bacin d'amor.

    Per un bacin d'amore
    successer tanti guai
    ah no credeva mai
    doverti abbandonar.

    Doverti abbandonare
    volerti tanto bene
    Queste son le catene
    che m'incatena il cuor.

    Che m'incatena il cuore
    che m'incatena il pianto.
    Averti tanto amato
    doverti da lasciar.

    Che m'incatena il cuore
    che m'incatena a vita.
    Ahimè che son tradita
    per un bacin d'amor

    E' morto un Alpino

    E' morto un Alpin, sulla montagna
    Ritornava dal confin dopo la guerra:
    ma quando l'Alpin l'è cascà in terra
    fu lì un angel del Trentin
    che ghe diseva:
    " O bell'alpino, alla tua casetta
    manda un saluto: io l' porterò"
    Allora l'Alpin l'ha verti i oci,
    ghe parea che l'angiol fosse lì vicino:
    "Angel del cielo, l'ultimo mio baso
    portemel caldo al mio tesor,
    portemel caldo al mio amore."
    E' morto un Alpino
