Young Italian children play a game that is very similar to the one known as “Ring-a-Ring-o’-Roses”. It is called Girotondo.

How to play:girotondo - Italian children's game
The children make a ring by holding hands and walking in a circle while chanting a short rhyme.
At the end of the song they throw themselves down onto the ground and then they start all over again.


Giro girotondo
Casca il mondo
Casca la Terra
Tutti giu’ per terra!
Turn round and round
the world falls down
the Earth falls down
everybody down on the ground!

Try it and have fun!
