WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE OF THE RADICAL RIVERISTS

 

“Nice? It’s the only thing,” said the Water Rat solemnly, as he leant forward for his stroke. “Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.”

[Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows]

 

BENVENUTI NEL SITO DEI FLUVIALISTI RADICALI

 

“Bello? È l’unica cosa bella, - sentenziò il Topo d’acqua solennemente, mentre si raccoglieva in avanti per la battuta. – “Credimi, mia giovane amica, non c’è nulla, assolutamente nulla che valga la metà del semplice bazzicare intorno alle barche. Semplice bazzicare.”

[ Kenneth Grahame, Il vento nei salici  traduzione: Beppe Fenoglio]
