  1. Wendy Hartnell

    I really enjoyed this book. It was very short and perhaps a bit easy for me but I picked up some new words and it gave an insight into an important moment in modern Italian history.

  2. Linda Ann (verified owner)

    I found this book very interesting since it tells about the election in June 1946 and with June 2nd being a holiday in Italy I wanted to learn more. It was fun as it seemed like you were sitting next to Marcella and she spoke in such a natural way.

  3. Anna Kucharska (verified owner)

    A very interesting enjoyable story, the level was about right for me, pushing me a bit without being too difficult!

    A very interesting, enjoyable story, the level of Italian was enough to push me without being too advanced.

    An enjoyable and interesting short story by Robert Gamberini about an important day for women in Italy. A personal touch to read about Marcella’s exciting day getting ready to vote for the first time, her views and those of her husband, Antonio
    I liked the fact that the chapters are short with a quiz at the end of each, as well as a glossary. I learnt a lot of new words and phrases. It is also helpful to be able to listen/read at the same time – the narrator spoke very clearly and at a good speed, which for me is very important.
    All in all, I really enjoyed it and would recommend it for this level A2/B1. Especially good value as I bought it as one of a bundle in the sale!

    I also enjoyed this little book very much. Always some new vocabulary to learn and such a lovely but historical story. Marcella has a mind of her own and kept the peace with Antonio by not telling him how she was voting. Another very good read by Roberto Gamerini. Worth reading and listening to as all helps towards our love of learning italian.

    This is a real gem; full of humanity, nicely observed details, a dose of Italian history ─ and as with all ‘easy readers’, it is an easy but instructive read. Bravo! Grazie!

    I did not expect an easy reader to be so filled with human experience…the beginnings of a day beautifully depicted…..deciding what to wear, how to vote…..describing a woman’s daily life! The author honored the reading student with unexpected word pictures bringing to life an Italian couple we can relate to. Grazie Mille!

    Mi piace questo libro perché racconta la storia di un periodo molto importante della storia italiana.
    Mi piace Marcella. Lei è felice e eccitata perchè lei può votare per il prima volta.
    Marcella ha detto una bugia a suo marito Antonio, e lei ha tenato il segreto per trent’anni.
    Era un tempo molto importante e interessante per gli italiani.
    Secondo me alcuni dei vocaboli sono difficili, in particolare capitolo sette.
    Non capisco alcune parole.
    Ma è meglio che essere troppo facile!
    Anche, mi piace leggere mentre ascolto l’audio.
    La donna parla molto velocemente ma naturalamente.
    Allora Daniel, grazie per 2 giugno 1946!

    I enjoyed reading 2 giugno 1946. It was easy to read, and I liked the story.

  11. July Rice (verified owner)

    Cute, interesting story. Short, however – 20 pages – not really a “book”, but worth the reduced price I paid. Altogether a professionally executed text for B level learners. I would be happy to buy more.

    Great for reading and listening comprehension. Interesting and with good vocabulary. I’ve just started level B1 and found the text challenging without being too difficult.

  13. Linda Cooper (verified owner)

    As always, I thoroughly enjoyed Roberto Gamberini’s new easy reader. He always manages to make the stories interesting, while giving us a window into the Italian culture. Viva la repubblica and the women’s vote. I learned a bit of Italian history along the way. I strongly recommend this book.

  14. Angela Charles (verified owner)

    I much enjoyed the story and was delighted to understand most of it! It’s encouraging to be able to see the progress that is made with continuous learning.

    A lovely little story. Very clearly narrated and easy to follow. More, please!
