  • Masters Iva Tue-Y and Edio Tue-Chu have spent a few days in Myanmar, and would like to share this experience with you all. Here’s Part 1 of their journey: myanmar_foglie-oro-eng




Eternal Italy
I shall never forget
This sombre winter day
She was slyly attacked
Seriously wounded
From afar, from Canada, I cried
Invaded by a deep sorrow
I pulled myself together
Standing, pointing my finger to the east
Italy will win!
You will defeat all these coronas
Because I love you, Italy
Where I have many friends…
