Edit
Goofs Teresa's card taken from the card box by the headmistress is different from the one she hands to the presidente. E.g. the former says "nata il 2 luglio 1924" and "adottata dai..." (adopted from). On the latter it says "nata 2-7-1924" (which in the European format is indeed the same date) and instead of "adottata" it says "allevata dai..." (raised by). See more »
