What can you NOT find on the Internet?

My dear little sister alerted me to a You Tube video of my acceptance speech for the Premio Speciale Città di Monselice last year, for my translation of Pope's Rape of the Lock. Even if it's all in Italian (you can skip the first five minutes) I am delighted I can now share it with Elisabetta and many of my friends and family who could not come, due to the short notice.

Here's the link – so you can hear how Signor Gallenzi speaks Italian. I am the one on the right in the photo (hem).


  1. Congratulations Signor Gallenzi, on your prize. I've no idea what you're saying, but I'm sure you were very polite.
    Kind regards,
    Cezar Voiculescu (Mr)

  2. Very well done, indeed!
