Vedi sotto.......


Explanation:
I would translate "scarsa importanza" with "immaterial importace or relevance".
But because of the double negative here
{"..not of immaterial importance"}, I would translate this as:
"....of material importance" or
"....of material relevance"
Ciao,

Explanation:
Rick, it all depends on what is scarsamente importante here, and not knowing the rest of the sentence it is hard to tell.
