Part 2 - Co.As.It Community Services
primo pomeriggio dopo
pranzo o dopo il riposino
pomeridiano. Fai sentire la
persona importante e
speciale, e magari manda
anche un biglietto:
”Ciao Linda, se ti va bene,
ti vengo a trovare domani
per chiacchierare un po’
e prendere un caffè o un tè
insieme!”
• Quando incontri il paziente,
guardalo/la negli occhi e
dagli un abbraccio,
accoglilo/la con un saluto
caloroso e poi siediti
davanti a lui/lei.
• Se vuoi e credi che possa
darti una mano a rompere
il ghiaccio, porta con te un
fiore, un frutto, o dei
biscotti fatti in casa. Questi
piccoli rimedi a volte
possono essere di grande
aiuto per iniziare una
conversazione e anche
per fare in modo che il
paziente si lasci andare e si
senta più rassicurato.
• Spegni la TV e la radio, e
chiudi la porta se ci sono
dei rumori forti che
potrebbero disturbarvi.
• Fai particolare attenzione
al linguaggio del corpo del
paziente e di come ti muovi
e ti comporti: se tieni le
braccia incrociate o se
continui a fissare l’ora,
•
potrebbe essere percepito
come segno che non vuoi
essere lì. Allo stesso modo,
se il paziente continua a
sbadigliare e non mantiene
il contatto con gli occhi,
inventa una scusa e magari
torna quando il paziente è
più ricettivo.
Se i vostri incontri sono
sempre nella camera da
letto, cerca di cambiare
l’ambiente, magari
spostandovi in veranda o
andando fuori in giardino.
Attività per migliorare le visite
individuali:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Leggi ad alta voce qualcosa
di divertente, come per
esempio una barzelletta o
una poesia.
Fate insieme dei giochi
semplici, come puzzle o
giochi da tavolo.
Porta con te dei quiz e dei
giochi di parole.
Guardate l’album delle foto
di famiglia e magari fatene
uno insieme.
Chiedi se ti raccontano la
storia della loro vita, di
quando andavano a scuola,
gli amici d’infanzia, la
famiglia, le ricette segrete
della nonna, e dei loro
animali domestici.
Scopri che interessi
avevano, per esempio a un
pescatore potrebbe far
piacere guardare una rivista
di pesci, mentre a un sarto
potrebbe interessare
sfogliare riviste di moda.
7. Se i pazienti vengono da
altri paesi, procurati dei
quiz o delle storie del loro paese di origine.
8. Ascoltate la radio insieme,
leggete, parlate di libri, di
programmi scientifici o
anche solo chiacchierate.
9. Fate delle passeggiate in
giardino e parlate della
casa dove viveva il paziente, se era bravo/a in
giardino e con le piante.
10. Proponi un massaggio
delicato alle mani e
alle spalle.
11. Sii sincero perché il tuo
comportamento può
influenzare la visita: se
non sei presente
fisicamente e mentalmente,
il paziente potrebbe percepirlo e quindi
diventare indifferente.
12. Se il paziente soffre di
demenza, sii pronto a
ripetere la conversazione
più volte; osserva le foto
che tiene in camera e fai
delle domande su quelle
foto; apprezza e rispetta il
paziente.

community events
Co.As.It. Community Services,
under the patronage of the
Italian Consulate for Queensland
and the Northern Territory, was
again proud to stage another
Community Concert on 29
November, 2014.
Held at the old site of the
Italo-Australian Centre, which
has now been renovated and
refurbished by the Multicultural
Development Association, the
event was a significant occasion
linked to the traditional
spiritual presence of the Italian
community in the area.
20
As the lights dimmed, Master
of Ceremonies Damien Anthony
Rossi warmly welcomed
the community and special
guests before calling upon the
President of Co.As.It.
Cav. Nereo Brezzi, to address
the audience.
Highlighting Co.As.It.’s 37
year history and its ability to
meet the needs of so many in
the community, Cav. Brezzi
thanked the audience for
their continued patronage of
the event before introducing
the Italian Consul for Qld and
the Northern Territory, Dott.
Ludovico Carlo Camussi. Dott.
Camussi expressed his thanks
to the assembled local and
state representatives, namely
Cr Kim Marx (Representing the
Lord Mayor), Cr Vick Howard
(Brisbane Central) and Ms
Mariangela Stagnitti (Com.It.Es.
President) for their support and
cooperation which makes it
possible for organisations like
Co.As.It. to successfully deliver
specialised services to many in
the community.
A wonderful array of talented
entertainers created a festive
atmosphere for over 380
spectators. Skilled dancers from
the Baila Conmigo Dance Group
(Club 50/50) performed the
tango amongst other well known
dances and interstate performer
Nata Forte flew in especially for
the event.
Of particular enjoyment
were soprano Leslie MartinNightingale and tenor Raffaele
Pierno.
Raffaele’s a-capella rendition
of “Nessun dorma” following
a special audience request,
brought the audience to its feet
in enthusiastic appreciation.
The ever popular Alfio Bonanno,
an Italian-Australian tenor,
musician, songwriter and
composer who jetted in from
New York gave emotional
performances of favourites
“Chitarra romana”, “Il mondo”,
“Non pensare a me” and “Il
nostro sogno” that brought tears
to the eyes of many.
His final song “Con te partirò”
was a huge crowd pleaser with
many spectators crowding
around him after the event for
signed CD’s and photographs.
Following the performances, the
guests received complimentary
prosecco and panettone and
many congratulations were
passed to concert organiser
Carmel Paolino and her team
for once again coordinating an
unforgettable event which was
thoroughly enjoyed by all who
attended.
Co.As.It. also thanks its
many supporters, community
organisations and individuals for
the continued support of this
annual event.

Giovedì 4 dicembre nella sede
dell’ILC a Newmarket si è
tenuta la festa di chiusura del
Girotondo Italian Playgroup, il
programma per l’apprendimento
dell’italiano dedicato a bambini
dai 3 ai 5 anni.
Alle 10 i bambini, coordinati
dalla loro insegnante Laura
Zanichelli, accolgono i presenti
sulle note di Ciao buongiorno.
Poi si inizia a sentire un tintinnio
di campanelle: è il momento
di Fra Martino e di Jingle Bells
(ovviamente in italiano!).
22
Sono presenti, oltre
all’insengnante, la coordinatrice
del programma Carmel Paolino
e tre studentesse dell’Università
Ca’ Foscari di Venezia:
Elisabetta Lombardo, Debora
Rigo e Silvia Cosentino, che
stanno svolgendo uno stage di 3
mesi al Co.As.It.
Dopo il piccolo concerto è ora
di un natalizio morning tea,
servito su un buffet riccamente
decorato, dove Italia e Australia
si incontrano tra lamington e
pandoro.
Fuori fa caldo, ma l’atmosfera
all’ILC è quasi da Polo Nord,
manca solo Babbo Natale…
ma l’ILC non si fa mancare
proprio niente: Babbo Natale fa
un’eccezione e passa con un po’
di anticipo.
I bambini, seduti in cerchio
increduli, ricevono caramelle,
dolcini e un libricino in Italiano:
La passegiata di Flick, magari
per esercitarsi un po’ durante le
vacanze, prima di ricominciare
il Girotondo Italian Playgroup a
febbraio 2015.

The StuditaliA prize was
established in 1994 to
encourage and promote
excellence in Italian studies
in schools in Queensland and
reward the achievements of
Year 12 students of Italian.
It is an expression of the
commitment to maintain
the diffusion of Italian
language and culture by the
Italian Government and the
Queensland Department
of Education, Training and
Employment (DETE), as well
as the Italian community in
Brisbane.
Thanks to the sponsors, the
four 2014 winners each won
the opportunity to study and
live in Italy. The prize includes
a return airline ticket from
Queensland and one month’s
24
attendance at a secondary
school in Cividale del Friuli, plus
accommodation and meals at
the Convitto Nazionale Paolo
Diacono near the northern
Italian city of Udine.
The proceedings began with
Patrea Walton, Deputy DirectorGeneral of DETE, expressing
her delight at being present
at the event marking 20 years
of collaboration with Italian
authorities.
This partnership has given many
students the chance to perfect
their acquisition of Italian not
only through the StuditaliA prize
but also through the
Fri.Sa.Li. network which offers
student exchange opportunities.
This demonstrates the State
Government’s commitment to
increasing global connections
thus enhancing the prospects of
students in becoming globally
competitive citizens.
Then Dr Ludovico Carlo Camussi,
Italian Consul for Queensland
and the Northern Territory,
was called upon to address the
audience.
He began by quoting the
Caribbean philosopher, Frantz
Fanon, who said: “To speak a
language is to take on a world,
a culture”.
Dr Camussi congratulated the
winners on their success and
reminded them of the many
benefits and rewards inherent in
the study of a foreign language
and culture.
25
The current winners’
presentations were followed
by a combined presentation
and video link from the 2013
StuditaliA winners (Clara Barrs,
Thomas Hale, Nathalie Khan and
Tegan Buckingham) who spoke
of their stay in Italy.

ceremony closed with the
students of Bulimba State School
providing the entertainment.
The photographic display
of memorable moments
experienced during their monthlong stay in Cividale del Friuli
left no doubt that winning the
prize has been a life-changing
experience.
Italian teacher Connie Harley
prepared the students who
delighted the audience with
speeches in Italian from two
Year 3 students and a beautiful
group song ‘Mi scappa la pipì
papà’.
The colourful interpretations
of handwritten Italian poems
arranged in a way to create a
visual image are a testament to
the passionate Italian teaching
and learning that occurs in
Italian classes throughout
Queensland schools.
They expressed heartfelt
gratitude to the Italian

sponsors the prestigious
StuditaliA Prize.
Sounds of laughter are a clear
indication that people are
having a good time. This was the
case on the evening of Friday 7
November 2014 when numerous
ILC students congregated at the
Italian Language Centre for the
final ILC movie get-together of
Semester 2.
After a warm welcome by ILC
course coordinator Marzia
Mauro, ILC student interns,
Elisabetta Lombardo and Debora
Rigo from the University of Ca’
Foscari, Venice, introduced the
film ‘Sole a Catinelle’.
Elisabetta and Debora were
completing a three month
internship at ILC. They
delivered a vibrant PowerPoint
presentation which introduced
the viewers to the main
character of the film: Checco
Zalone, the well-known Italian
comic actor who plays the part
of a dad and his son as they
learn how to live a new life
following the break-up of the
family.
mingled while enjoying a glass
of wine.
The hilarious comedy is played
against a backdrop of insightful
situations highlighting current
Italian socio-political issues.
One of the best ways to improve
understanding of a language is
to listen to native speakers.
From 5:45pm onwards delicious
wood-fired pizzas began arriving
as ILC students and their guests
All language learners work hard
at perfecting the four skills of
reading, writing, listening and
speaking.
ILC movie nights are held
regularly and provide the
opportunity for ILC students to
perfect their listening skills.

On a warm late Spring evening
the convivial buzz of guests
enjoying themselves could be
heard coming from the Urban
Nosh Café on the Senior Campus
at North Lakes State College
(NLSC).
It was Tuesday 4 November and
assembled students, parents
and teachers were eagerly
anticipating the moment when
the Year 9 students would be
called up to receive certificates
to mark their successful
graduation from the Italian
Immersion Program.
As the moving strains of the
Australian and Italian national
anthems died away, Barry

Duncan, Head of Department
International Studies, welcomed
guests to the 2014 Aperitivo
Dinner.
study Italian, Mathematics,
History/Geography and Science
all in Italian over a 3-year
period from Year 7 to Year 9.
Barry reminded everyone that
the Italian Immersion program
at NLSC successfully commenced
in 2008 and has been going from
strength to strength over the
last six years.
Students thus learn the
subject and the language
simultaneously. For students
who are not admitted to the
Immersion program, Italian is
offered as a subject from Prep
to Year 12.
For those unfamiliar with what
an immersion program is,
Barry explained that it entails
studying a language through the
use of language.
This means that students
admitted to the Italian
Immersion program at NLSC,
The Acting Executive Principal,
Ms. Katrina Larsen, was then
invited to formally welcome the
guests before commencing on
the delicious menu prepared
by the talented Hospitality
students at NLSC who served
antipasto platters, baked
chicken risotto and cannelloni
before finishing the splendid
meal with exquisite desserts
– tiramisu and a strawberry
parfait.
Debby Hansen, the parent of a
graduating student then spoke
of the involvement with the
Italian Immersion program from
the family’s point of view.
In between courses, Dina
Ranieri, Director of Co.As.It
Community Services and the
Italian Language Centre (ILC),
addressed the guests.
As she spoke of how the
program had been an enriching
experience, it became clear
that the success of such a
program is underpinned by
the collaboration and support
provided by the family.
Dina warmly congratulated the
students on their achievements
and commended NLSC for
investing in the Italian
Immersion program and in so
doing being at the forefront
of educational practices that
respond to global needs.
Each graduating student
received a certificate as well
as a memento – a lapel pin in
the shape of entwined Italian/
Australian flags which the
students are permitted to
display proudly on the lapel or
collar of their school uniforms.
The most important part of the
evening followed with Barry
Duncan inviting Ms. Katrina
Larsen, Acting Executive
Principal of NLSC, and Dina
Ranieri to present the awards.
29
Teachers, parents and students
from Rainworth State School
congregated to celebrate the
graduation of the Year 6 and
Year 7 students who will be
moving on to high school in
2015.
After a warm welcome and
memorable address by Principal
Adam Matthewson, some light
entertainment followed before
the presentation of Graduation
certificates
Italian teacher Signor Alfredo
Ferranti and his students had
been hard at work preparing
two Italian skits for the
audience to enjoy.
The first was based on two
Commedia dell’Arte characters:
Il Dottore and Pantalone. In
faultless Italian (and no prompt
cards!) the students acted out
how the old Venetian miser
Pantalone goes to Il Dottore for
a free medical examination.
Il Dottore diagnoses many
ailments and prescribes an
essential but very costly
medicine.
Pantalone reluctantly hands
over his coins only to discover
that the medicine bottle is
simply full of ‘good air’. Il
30
Dottore scampers off gleefully
jiggling his money bag. In the
second skit, the characters
Mamma, Papà and Figlia sit
around the dinner table with the
cat Micio at their feet.
Figlia whines for ‘pane e
Nutella’ but Mamma knows best,
and keeps putting wholesome
food on the daughter’s plate.
After the Graduation
Certificates had been presented,
it was time for a very special
award – the Co.As.It. Italian
Ambassador’s Award 2014
which is given every year to
those students of Italian who
demonstrate a keen interest in
the language they are studying.
Unbeknown to Mamma, Figlia
shovels everything onto Micio’s
plate. At the end of the meal,
Mamma finally rewards Figlia
with ‘pane e Nutella’ for having
finished all her food.
This means the winners are
not necessarily the most
linguistically gifted but are
students who embrace all
aspects of learning Italian and
who participate in activities
beyond those which take place
only in the classroom.
But before Figlia can enjoy
her ‘reward’ Micio snatches it
away – announcing that he is
the rightful recipient for having
eaten all Figlia’s food. Papà
picks up the wooden spoon .....
as Figlia runs off screaming
‘aiuto!’
The very deserving winners of
the Co.As.It. Italian Ambassador
Award 2014 were: Rainer
Englund-Strachan, Phoebe Oats,
Alexa Stevens and Will Walker.
Each received a commemorative
plaque and a book voucher to
mark their achievement.
