Da or dal? » answer
by songsinger, 2017-10-10, 03:36  like dislike  Spam?  68.106.31...
When you are saying a song is from a larger work in Italian, is it 'da' or 'dal'? For example, Voi che sapete, da Il nozze di Figaro -or- Voi che sapete, dal Il nozze di Figaro ? Or is it supposed to be something completely different? I've seen it both ways and want to make sure I've been saying the right way, thank you!
by Lauryn13 (IT), 2017-10-26, 11:25  like dislike  Spam?  
You can write/say either ...dalle "Nozze di Figaro" or ....da "Le nozze di Figaro"
Hello all! » answer

This may sound silly but I just got a new sports car that is very fast.  I wanted to get a personized license plate that was clever.  I wanted VELOCE but it is already taken.  I am looking for a word for "goodbye" but not like Ciao (as in a friendly goodbye) but instead a smart aleck sort of goodbye.  One that boasts about how fast the car is like a  "See ya!" Kind of goodbye as it pulls away from you.  Would ADDIO be appropriate here?

Thanks so much for your help!

ADDIO it's like the last goodbye that you tell to someone before, mabye a travel that never get you back. Perhaps you could use ARRIVEDERCI that it's sound like 'goodbye see you later'. I hope to be useful!
Little breaker? » answer
by MaryColleen (UN), 2017-09-06, 22:11  like dislike  Spam?  
My grandfather's family immigrated from Sicily and when he was a boy, they had a nickname for him. It was along the lines of "little breaker/destroyer" because he loved to take things apart but couldn't always get them back together. I can't remember what it was and I'd really appriciate if someone could help me.

Thank you!
Grandma's saying translated » answer
by Icecreamviking (UN), 2017-08-04, 19:24  like dislike  Spam?  
I'm trying to recollect a saying my grandmother used to love, I know the literal english translation and some of the Italian words, but I'm not sure I remember the internal grammar correctly

the phrase is "garlic speaks louder than words". I was hoping to get a shirt made that reads, in Italian, "my grandmother told me that garlic speaks louder than words". if anyone could help I'd be obliged. thanks.
Translation could be  #889274
by MarcoD (IT), 2018-04-04, 19:48  like dislike  Spam?  
A grammar-correct translation could be: "L'Aglio parla più forte delle parole" or the whole sentence: "Mia nonna diceva che l'aglio parla più forte delle parole"

dacci dacci » answer
by joseph-s (UN), Last modified: 2017-07-30, 14:25  like dislike  Spam?  
My grandmother would sit us on her lap, facing her, hold our hands and lean us back, then pull us back up, and as we were going up and down, she would say, possibly like a nursery rhyme, "dacci dacci", I'm forgetting the middle text, but at the end she would say, "everybody goes dacci dacci". Would anyone be familiar with this. She was from Salle, in the Abruzzi region. Appreciate any help. Grazie

My grandmother sang this song to us, too! Same way with the leg, and up and down (“like a seesaw” she used to say) and she was from Abruzzi too!

It was kind of like this:

Dacci Dacci Dacci,
(Name of child) vuole ciacci
E la ciaccia non giusta
E la tole va cata
Frusti frusti frusti! (said while lightly slapping cheeks)
Non e la verde!

Hi forum members

Would anyone be willing to translate this note for me, with particular attention paid to the name of the person writing it. I can not read the joined-up Italian to even start to put in into google translate.

Would be grateful

"I, the undersigned Balboni Iside declare to renounce to my daughter Balboni Anna Maria forever and consign her to mister.....
Mister     and authorize him to take her.
Iside Balboni"

The last word isn't proper italian and there are a couple grammar errors in the original.
If you need any clarification feel free to ask.
Proverb translation » answer
by Jonathanfarah91, 2017-04-20, 12:38  like dislike  Spam?  194.126.21...
Could someone please help me translate these words? And what does it mean? Google translate did nothing, it made it harder. I'm thinking it's a proverb:
"O sguardi che son come mani d'amante, dentro un tesoro di femminee chiome" - Amalia Guglielininetti
by Squirrel-quattro (UN), 2017-04-20, 19:31  like dislike  Spam?  
I don't think it's a proverb. A translation attempt:
"Oh glances/looks which are as/like lover's hands, in a treasure of feminine treetops."

It's probably not the best English, as it's not my native language, but I hope it helps you to understand the sentence.

PS: There's a typo in the author's name in your post ("m", not "in"): Wikipedia(EN): Amalia_Guglielminetti ;)

"Oh glances that are like lover's hands, inside a treasure of feminine mane"
It's definitely not a proverb, most likely some form of poetry that google translate has issues with because the language used is very refined.
For the meaning of it I don't know if it's a part of a larger composition, if it isn't I guess the meaning is up to your interpretation.

Hi all,
My aunt that just recently passed away used to bounce me on her knee while singing this song to me in Italian. I know the spelling is probably wayyy off, but I've never seen the words written I just remember them from her singing. If anyone can translate or knows the correct spelling I would greatly, greatly appreciate it.

Spelling the way that it sounds, the words are:

Baca dia
Su ma tah
Nay day Lana
Nay day stupa

I'm sorry for the awful spelling attempt but again if anyone knows anything about this saying/song, I'd love to know. I wish now that I had asked my aunt before her passing
by Squirrel-quattro (UN), 2017-04-20, 19:50  like dislike  Spam?  
"nay day" could maybe be written "nei dei".
  Pronunciation of "nei":
  Pronunciation of "dei":
The last line could maybe be "avi della vecchia" (= "ancestors of the old woman").
  Pronunciation of "vecchia":

Maybe you could write it in IPA (Wikipedia(EN): International_Phonetic_Alphabet), so I would maybe be able to recognize some other words. Maybe you could try Google voice search, too?

Could someone please help me understand the text in the postcard.  It was written to my grandfather who was fighting in the Czech Legion with the Italian army on the Austrian border.   The back has some printed poem in Italian about freedom and glory.

Many thanks

The writing is really hard to read due to the writing style, photo resolution and age , this is what I was able to read with a little guesswork() here and there:

"Con un po' di ritardo rispondo alla sua cartolina dove (apprendo) che gode di ottima salute, così le auguro che sia sempre.
(Mi scriva) sempre che mi fa molto piacere di sapere le sue (notizie).
Riceva tanti saluti dalla mia famiglia, da me riceva tanti saluti e (pensieri) sua conoscente-nome-"

Which translates to

" I answer with a little delay to your mail from which I learn you are very healthy and I wish you will be so always.
Keep writing to me, i love hearing news from you.
Many regards from my family and many regards and thoughts from me, your acquaintance -name-"

EXTRA INFO: The letter is sent to Caporale(Corporal) Goffredo gunners squad 2nd battery 2nd company which I guess is your grandfather and seems to be sent by a woman whose name I cannot decipher.

Thank you very much. I was puzzling a bit over this name Goffredo as my grandfather's name is Bohumir.  But now that I think about it, Bohumir is Czech for Godfrey or Geoffrey, and I guess now that Goffredo is just an Italian version of his name.  It's quite useful to know his squad in the Czech Legion in Italy, so thank you for the translation.
