The spider man Anansi wants to capture all the knowledge in the world in a pumpkin and keep it for himself: Cooking recipes, building instructions, formulas, but also vocabulary and grammar rules. Wilhelm von Humboldt also wanted to collect vocabulary and grammar rules. But he wanted to share them with as many people as possible. He was fascinated by the different languages and learned more than 30 of them.

In two of these languages, Italian and German, Maria Carmela Marienlli and Naemi Schmidt-Laubner take their audience into the world of languages, experimenting with sounds, word chains and animal languages, telling stories about Wilhelm von Humboldt and encouraging us to preserve language as a valuable treasure.
