It\'s an easy case to prove. Here are a few examples:

Guiseppe Verdi = Joe Green

Leonardo Da Vinci = Len Winner

Michaelangelo = Mickey Angel


So whose idea was it to write all those operas in Italian?

I don\'t see your point. Anyway, it\'s Giuseppe (not Guiseppe)

L'importante è avere orecchio :-) Mar 24, 2003

Dan,


avrei potuto scrivere in inglese, ma visto che scrivi nel forum italiano e paragoni la poeticità delle due lingue, immagino che la Tua conoscenza della lingua italiana sia tanto approfondita da seguirmi comunque, altrimenti la Tua affermazione sarebbe estremamente scontata e molto di parte.


A proposito, citi solo nomi propri, non esattamente un esempio folgorante di poeticità innata.


Giuliana

P.s. Vinci is a place near Pisa, therefore Leo Winner should be Leo from Vinci, if ya wanna do the tranny thing.


I think Dan here is Italian-baiting...

Una provocazione? May 9, 2003

Se non è uno scherzo, sicuramente è una provocazione e di cattivo gusto che va cmq. contro le regole di net e proz etichette.

Dan was joking May 9, 2003

I locked this thread as it has attracted only outraged comments and it is totally sterile.

See it as an attempt at being funny, but good humor is a rare gift...
