"The Palace of Ice Cream"
by Gianni Rodari
~ Once, in Bologna, it was made a palace of ice cream right on the Piazza Maggiore, and the
children came from far away to give him a lick. The roof was of whipped cream, the smoke from
the chimneys of cotton candy, candied fruit chimneys. Everything else was ice cream: the doors
of ice cream, ice cream walls, the furniture of ice cream.
A small child was attached to a table and licked his paws one by one, until he collapsed on the table with all the dishes, and the dishes were of chocolate ice cream, the most good.
A guard of the city, at one point, he noticed that a window was melting. The glass was of strawberry ice cream, and pink squagliavano in rivulets.
- Soon, - cried the guard, - the earliest yet! And all down to lick soon as possible, so as not to let go lost a single drop of that masterpiece. 
- A chair! - Begged for an old lady, who could not make her way through the crowd 
- A chair for a poor old woman. Who can bring me one? With armrests, if you can.
A generous firefighter ran to fetch a chair and pistachio ice cream, and the poor old lady, all blessed, he began to lick her own armrests.
It was a great day, that, and to order any of the doctors had a stomach ache. Even now, when the kids ask for another ice cream, parents sigh: 
- Yeah, for you it would take a whole building, like that of Bologna.
