Italian tongue twister

Trentatré Trentini entrarono a Trento, tutti e trentatré, trotterellando

Meaning: thirty-three people from Trento (northern Italy) entered Trento, all thirty-three trotting.

I first came across this tongue twister in the mid 1990s in an excellent BBC Italian course Italianissimo. Sadly, this no longer seems to be available.


    1. Thanks Juan Fº for forwarding the link to programme 1 of Italianissimo on YouTube. When I have time, I’ll check which programme this tongue twister appeared in.
