A-Team :: Matelda Codagnone

Appetibilis Team: Matelda Codagnone (aka Deda)

Hello there! My name is Matelda Codagnone – aka Deda – or Speedy Mat… (as someone used to call me).

Everybody keeps asking me the origin of my name. “Dante!” I answer. She is the woman the Poet meets in Paradise before Beatrice. But friends just call me Deda!

I am Abruzzese and I simply adore Flaiano (Italian scriptwriter, journalist and humorist) and his smart, ironic and free mindset.

Una fiammata – i papaveri,
sotto il cielo di giugno.

“Have you not noticed that the wild flowers are becoming scarcer every year? It may be that their wise men have told them to depart till man becomes more human. Perhaps they have migrated to heaven.”
