I have the simple ansible script below:

- hosts: myhost
    - name: few commands
      command: "{{ item }}"
        - ls -l
        - df -h
        - cat /tmp/1

there will be more commands and files, how I can display the execution of each command ?

One could use -vvv to get the output of the commands while running the playbook:

changed: [localhost] => (item=echo helloworld) => {
    "ansible_loop_var": "item", 
    "changed": true, 
    "cmd": [
    "delta": "0:00:00.002517", 
    "end": "2019-12-20 15:20:09.042020", 
    "invocation": {
        "module_args": {
            "_raw_params": "echo helloworld", 
            "_uses_shell": false, 
            "argv": null, 
            "chdir": null, 
            "creates": null, 
            "executable": null, 
            "removes": null, 
            "stdin": null, 
            "stdin_add_newline": true, 
            "strip_empty_ends": true, 
            "warn": true
    "item": "echo helloworld", 
    "rc": 0, 
    "start": "2019-12-20 15:20:09.039503", 
    "stderr": "", 
    "stderr_lines": [], 
    "stdout": "helloworld", 
    "stdout_lines": [
