roberto-poleselloOn this site, I am creating a resource that will help you to access and appreciate important works in Friulian, Italian and Latin, as well as improve your understanding and use of language in normal communication settings in the case of Friulian and Italian.

Through grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation notes and supplementary examples of usage, I am providing a study of the Italian language as used in Le avventure di Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi, Il Principe by Niccolò Machiavelli and fables written by Leonardo da Vinci, as well as a study of the Friulian, Italian and Latin languages as used in portions of the Bible.

I make ample use of literal translations into English on this site; the purpose of these translations is not to produce natural-sounding prose in English, but to serve as an educational tool that helps you to better grasp the meaning of the source text in Friulian, Italian or Latin.

Use the index to find your way about the site.
