    Il mio dizionario etimologico mi riporta al verbo latino /parabolare/,
    che significa /narrare usando una allegoria/.
    Mi piacerebbe andare piu` indietro, ma non ho gli strumenti, e al momento
    escludo di cercare su internet (ho fatto indigestione di ricerche su internet
    per i miei corsi).

    The origin, as reported by my etymological dictionary is
    from the latin verb /parabolare/, with the original meaning:
    to tell a tale that should be an example for something else
    (Italian: allegoria).
