Woman from Bari
Italian from bari, barese is your language, and the image that you reflect... Is the poem, the purest translation, of the Italian romanticism! You are the sweet mixture of all the people who came to Apulia, Greeks, Arabs, Franks, Lombards, Vikings, Spaniards.
You live in the old town, on the promontory overlooking the old port. You prefer ... the classic, when the time even in the efforts flows slowly ... speed and precipitation of modernity has never made you dream.
There are 2 million people in Apulia able to understand this language based on Italian, enriching with the foreign languages of the populations settled in Bari (Greeks, Arabs, French, Spaniards).
