Guest Art: Capitana Italia

Hey everyone. I am going to be without internet or phone service until at least Monday because a power outage seems to have destroyed my modem. Like a true geek this is very hard for me (I'm posting this from the library).

I do have a bit of guest art to post today in the form of a new superhero character conceived of and designed by my daughter, Angelica. I give you Capitana Italia:

Yes, Capitana Italia is a female version of Captain America, and she fights for Italy. This is what Angelica did on Fourth of July.

Yesterday, I was wondering what the fourth of July was for Italy.

Captain Italia looks great! What's her girl sidekick's name? :-)

Mi piace Capitana Italia!!!! E anche la gallina!
Brava Angelica!
Spero si sistemi presto il tuo modem!
ciao!

Oh, Anna; translations are nice for the non-Italiano-speaking relatives and friends. I get that Angelica is brave and something about the modem; sistemi presto makes me think that the system is to reappear like magic, or something. Help?

I think it means something like this,
"I like Captana Italia! And even the Chicken! Well done Angelica!"
I can't make much of the last sentence though, something about hoping and soon!
Dunno!

I guess this is Angelica suggesting that she wants to come to Gravagna!

My youngest daughter desperately wants to know the chicken's name and what it is trained to do. Does it have any powers? (She says she is interested in Captain Italia too.)

Hey Doug, the italian comment is from Anna Formaggio, an Italian illustrator. Some of her books are on this site:

She just said she hopes the modem is fixed soon.

AND IT IS! I HAVE INTERNET AGAIN THIS MORNING!

Bill: I'll have to check with Angelica about the story behind Capitana Italia's chicken. If the chicken is really a parallel to Cap's sidekick, Bucky Barns, then perhaps it will later become "The Winter Chicken" (Gallina Inverno).
