how is your bed? and your cradle when you were baby? Francesca - I have a basic ash tree bed, from my bed we draw out another the bed where my little sister sleeps. Sometimes I make some experiments trying to suffocate her during the night. I remember my cot when my sister was born, I was 7 years old and I would have loved to jump into it! Chiara - my bed is a camp bed, I have to drag it out from my sister’s bed. I love jumping on my bed but unfortunatly last night it fell down on my mum’s ankle! I have no memories of my cot, my mum put it off as soon was possible.

which kind of meal you do not like? which is your favourite dish that your mom prepare to you? Francesca - I have a kind of trauma from boiled fennels, at the kindergarden they forced me to eat them. My mum cooks great lasagna but I am not really interested in food, sometimes she tells me that if I don’t eat enough she will have to do restorative injections to me….  Chiara - I hate fish, EVERY KIND of fish, since ever! Everything cooked by my mum is eccelent, but I especially love her pizza, when I come back from school and I smell this incredible flavour I feel like paradise!!

your favorite book to read? Francesca - favole al telefono by Gianni Rodari and the Peanuts, there I learnt the word 'sarcasm' Chiara - just one? Il paese dei maghi by Pinin Carpi, but also Grande Gigante Gentile by Roahl Dahl.

have you got an imaginary friend? Francesca - I have no imaginary friend, but when I was a baby I called myself “the girl” Chiara - no, I have no imaginary friend: I like play by myself and do my own business!

What do you want to do when you grew up? Francesca - the director of a contemporary art gallery Chiara - writer or a cashier

If you could, what would you like to steal from the other one? Francesca - her converse collection Chiara - I have to say that I am super lucky! My sister gives me a free access to her bedroom, for this reason I am not jealous. Maybe I would love to wear her glasses but I stopped with this desire when I started to use them too!
