La Bassa 

La Bassa is a personal project dedicated to my lovely Italian hometown, Verona.

While I was chatting with some Italian friends, I realised how different Veronese idioms are compared to those of other cities in Italy. It’s like another language altogether! Inspired by that, I created an Instagram page that was all about the unique Veronese idioms (as you can see, a lot of them are related to food).

Intrigued by the project, my friends in the UK asked me to translate some of the words. These requests gave me the idea of creating a set of Instagram posts with the word in Veronese, Italian and English.

And just like that, now you’re a bit more Italian.
