L'Italiano è molto simile alla lingua Portoghese. Evidentemente derivano dalla stessa fonte.

Tuttavia, devo dire che suoni Italiani come una lingua bella.
Which translator us advise in internet?
Luv2Dance write in the page behind: "picole and sorvete" believing it was Italian. Us confirmations that are portuguese

Lately I've been using the following site: http://www.google.com/translate_t


Hope it's not way off the mark as such mediocre translations usually go.

The term 'sorvete' is indeed Portuguese, and it means ice cream, or gelato as you know; but not 'picole,' well at least not that I know of.

The term is most likely Brazilian, which is also Portuguese, but like the variation of English spoken in the US and in Britain, the Brazilian folks use certain terms that European Portuguese usually don't.
There is a particular type of ice cream in Brazil with the brand name "Picolé."


We also use a similar term as you folks for ice cream in Portuguese, with a slight variation. Rather than 'gelato' we say 'gelado.' However, in the region I come from 'gelado' is used primarily for those ice cram bars with a handle to hold on to.

Thanks for the translator, we will try hardly will serve to us.
Trying on yahoo like images "picole" would have to be in english "popsicle" e in italiano "ghiacciolo". Possible?

Actually I just edited my initial post considering that I recalled some enticing memories of Brazil where I lived for some time.

I always want to go to Italy right now. For us though it takes time to save the money. We usually stay for at least three weeks. With car rental and hotels it is very expensive. I think we will be back in maybe 2 years. We still have not been to the Amalfi coast or Sicily. I would like to spend more time in Umbria, Tuscany and in the northern lakes area as well. I think there will be many, many more trips to Italy!

Also we live in the northern Italy like Udine and Vittorio Veneto, just to Bologna native land of the lasagne - tortellini - tagliatelle (known in USA like fettuccini).
Do your daughter comes for vacations or study?

You have reason: Italy is expensive. It is for that we want to go to living in Mexico. Also if our dream remains the United States.
The Tuscany is much beautiful. It thinks that to Amalfi never we have not been. An other beautiful place for travels in Italy is the Sardegna. Perhaps we know more the city in USA that Italy.
