Storytellers – Mariella Bertelli

8 Jul

Davide Bardi Italia and Mariella Bertelli Canada

Mariella Bertelli is a storyteller, she’s Italian but has lived in Canada since 1967. She runs a Public Library in Toronto to be able to do her storytelling. She has worked often with italo-canadian kids, to help them understand the stories of their land that they left (like me telling Canadian stories of the wilderness to the boys), and the stories of great Canada where they live. For her, stories are a way of integrating themselves to the new world.

I like storytelling and I always read to my children at night all sorts of stories. Now they are big and one loves books, the other hates them. Maybe I told too many stories, took them to too many museums, too many trips. But stories are great to listen to. Now Giuseppe is making his story – L’anima nella montagna, which will knock the world off its feet.
