we are in a forest, at a town festival,a ball, an event, the lady wears a short skirt, the war has just ended,not long time ago. she is a dancer. her name is Armanda, Stella, Federica. She is a bright woman. She is looking for an husband. She is a lively person and has a good temper. People around is watching her. She works as a farmer, a caregiver, a housekeeper. She lives with her family, she is 50 years old less or more. She went to the ball with her friends, or her family maybe alone and she likes to show herself. there is music, you can hear the Banda Osiris, Papaveri e Papere, Carioca, old Italian songs. The band has 50 musicians or even more. You can hear trumpets, saxes, drums and Zaza song. She is dancing twist, it's the beginning of the year or of the summer.
At the end of the war people went to the beach, there was no money but it was funnier than today. One of us was wounded. Men went to the Army, Jolanda used to hide under a bridge with her mother during the bombing. lots of people died in Bassano, Germans used to come to our homes at night asking to eat but if the children cried they left. Fascist killed a young friend of Ernesto.
The lady is happy now, after a long hard period, the war is over.
then she stops dancing, she goes home to cook pasta and beans and to work but before she'll have a drink with her friends.
