Call Anyone Help with an Italian Rhyme that Goes “Questo la mangia pizza”?

Katie A. wrote asking for help with an Italian rhyme from her childhood. Here’s her email:

I was wondering if you could post this to help me find out what it was. When I was little my great grandma used to some kind of rhyme in Italian with our face. It went something like this:

Questo la mangia pizza
Questo la nuso profondo
Questo la fronte Bella

I am missing parts of it. But she would start with the chin then say something, then go to the mouth, then the forehead and then say something about the hair maybe…

Thank you

If anyone can help with this rhyme, please let us know in the comments below.

Thanks in advance!
