During the first meeting with my old neighbour, she called me the new resident of Casa Vaniglia. I found this very funny and thought she called the house that because of the yellow color, apparently for her yellow is a vanilla color, I thought. When I wanted to give the house a name I came back to the name of the house the neighbour had called and since then the house is called Casa Vaniglia.
The first acquaintance with the neighbor, so sweet she had brought a bowl of figs. We couldn't talk to each other yet but the first meeting was warm and cordial.
Last summer the outer facade was repaired and plastered again, so it had to be painted as well. After thinking for a long time I finally decided to give the house a different colour, a colour that better matches the colours used inside as well.
When the paint was on the walls and I went to the neighbour for coffee, I told her that the house isn't really Casa Vaniglia anymore, because it now has a different colour.
She looked a bit strange to me, so I reminded her that she gave the house this name because of the colour. Then she looked at me even more surprised and said "I never said that". Ohhh now I was surprised and now comes the best of all, my neighbour never called it Casa Vaniglia at all, but what turns out she then apparently said to me "are you the new Famiglia of the Casa". We had a huge laugh about this together and I think she called it that because of the yellow colour. Well I didn't speak a word of Italian then. Anyway it remains Casa Vaniglia and the story has actually become even more beautiful.
