“If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple.
But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.”

George Bernard Shaw

This site

katena.it was born in July 2002 as a all-out share resource for entertainer and educators working with youth and children. An idea for that time new and innovative. Over the years I have seen, with great satisfaction, that the site has been very well used by teachers, educators, parents and leaders of various fields.

Who I am

My name is Davide, When I was child I spent my spare time in "oratorio", the parish youth club, a place where play and enjoy. Now I try to collaborate with this when possible. I was a member of the diocesane "Pastorale Giovanile" (youth ministry) Staff for about ten years. Catechist (paused) and "jolly" organist of my parish. I studied at the Higher Institute of Religious Sciences of Pavia.

What you can find

In this site you can find some idea about recreational children's songs used in Italy. I try to conduct history research about this songs and their lyrics. When possible I write music sheets so you can play them.
