That's the cutest picture!


Look at you! What an adorable child. Such an enchanting setting, too - unmistakably Italy.


Aye! Que linda! And that's a pretty big cocomero.


Simona Carini

I have to admit I think I was a cute child. And yes, the cocomero was pretty big, over 30 pounds is what I remember. It was a gift from my uncle and everybody was afraid I would let go of the giant and that it would roll down the steps and hit someone or something. No disaster happened and we actually ate the cocomero.


Oh my God, I adore that photo! It's wonderful beyond words.

I had no idea the watermelon was so popular in Italy. Now I want to have a picnic of panzanella and cocomero this summer.

Simona Carini

I am very attached to that photo. I am glad my father liked to take pictures, so I have images like this one. I don't know now, but when I was a kid, there were itinerant sellers of just watermelons. The traveled from village to village with a truckload of them.
