The "Enchanted Story" of the Falls conquered the children
November 08, 2008

  • Giulia is a little girl who with her parents visited the Falls few days ago. She comes from the North of Italy and is one of many little girls completely ravished by the book that tells “the enchanted story of the Falls” . We are in the Upper Outlook and Giulia begin to read the book and forget everything around her. She has been completely ravished by the story between the shepherd Velino and the nymph Nera, the legend that during the century creates the Marmora Waterfall thanks to their love. Read… and force her parents to stay their to finish the book; only after reading the book, the visit cab start. Giulia is an invented name but the episode is really happened. The “Enchanted Story” is a great success, a cartoon invented by the workers of Marmore Falls. They worked hard to show the legend and about the love between the shepherd Velino and the nymph Nera, a love so strong to win the rage of Gods. Three months of hard work – but also amusement – repaid with the appreciation of the children who more often exit from the ticket-office with the book of the “Enchanted Story”. On the other hand if you read the first lines, you will ravish soon: Many years ago the world was different. There was the earth lived by human beings and animals, and an earth lived by fairies and supernatural creatures. Our story begins now…I mean the earth lived by fairies…

The Falls on Mickey Mouse: the magician Papernova is performing for Donald Duck’s Uncle Scrooge
November 04, 2008

  • “In the Marmots Falls, the marmots don’t sleep… it is excitement!”. The magician Papernova is performing for Donald Duck’s Uncle Scrooge, TV producer of the show Escape from the Falls. And “it set the record of listening!”, warned the richest gosling of the world. The last number of Mickey Mouse, news-stand today 4th November, you will find a surprise to the Marmore Falls…excuse me, of the marmots. The magician Paperoga is the title of the first chapter about a funny story that ends in the next number of the balloon. The story has been inspired to the exhibition of the Magician Casanova for the Italian TV programme “Striscia la Notizia” created by Ricci. About a year ago, the magician Casanova failed: he didn’t manage to exit from the box placed above the Velino river that flows into the Nera river. Now Paperoga tries to do it. The Falls is called the Marmots Falls and the helping aren’t the workers of Marmore Falls (the society that manages the tourist service of the area) but Donald Duck and Paperoga. The producer isn’t Berlusconi but Donald Duck’s Uncle Scrooge. All is ok: to know if the magician Donald Duck will be quicker than the magician Casanova, you must read the next number of Mickey Mouse. Nobody knew that the Falls will be in the most famous balloon of the world. A great satisfaction for the tourist workers, surprised and happy for taking part in the editing project of the Walt Disney.
