Tyrolean Wisdom Stories #4


San Nicolo Church, Castelfondo, late 1800’s

Proverbs from Trentino:

Dialect: Tutti li cimi scorla.

Translation: All genius are somewhat disturbed.


Dialect: Chi zappa, zacca e chi mette giù, tol su.

Translation: The one that hoes, eats; the one that sow, reaps.


Proverbs courtesy of Filo Magazine: A Journal for Tyrolean Americans.
