remaining material to be translated[edit]

I was confused as to why OwenBlacker had added the {{notenglish}} template here, until I went and looked at the article source, where I had left a large amount of untranslated Italian text, commented out. This is not the correct use of the {{notenglish}} tag, which is intended to mark articles that are problematic because the text seen by readers (rather than editors) is not in English.

Still, it's true that maybe someone should figure out what to do with the commented-out text. The situation is that I just got tired of translating the thing; it had devolved into matters that I didn't think were that interesting and I had other stuff to do, and it seemed like there was enough for an article, so I just commented out the rest, figuring I or someone else would get to it later. I'm not convinced most of the rest really needs to be translated, because as I say it's not exactly gripping, but there might be material that could be saved. Anyone who's interested, please feel free. --Trovatore 05:57, 30 April 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:EnricoDeNicola2.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:EnricoDeNicola2.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Other name[edit]

Hey, I was just wandering - what relation does this article have to do with this page? If they are the same, could a merge be arranged? If not, what about a link from the Politics of Italy page? Thanks - Weebiloobil (talk) 21:40, 6 March 2008 (UTC)

Well spotted! Though in fact that article needs to be merged into President of the Council of Ministers of Italy, rather than this one. I have tagged both with the proposal. (I should have done the merge myself, as nobody could object. But I have yet to learn how to do that while preserving GFDL-compliant edit histories.) —Ian Spackman (talk) 21:57, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
Thanks! I only got here through the random page link, so I think those at WP:Italy would do better than me to sort this. You can contact me on my talk page, if needs be. Thanks again! - Weebiloobil (talk) 22:05, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
I went ahead and redirected it. Didn't really see anything to merge. --Trovatore (talk) 02:52, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Edit[edit]

I've edited the section Role. It was stated that the President appoint one third of the judges of the Constitutional Court alongside the Parliament and the Government. While the bit on the President and the Parliament is correct, the last third is appointed by the supreme courts (Corte di Cassazione, Corte dei Conti, Consiglio di Stato, roughly Court of Cassation, Court of Auditors, Council of State). That is according to article 135 of the Constitution. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.117.60.171 (talk) 09:27, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

President of the Italian RepublicPresident of Italy — Per WP:COMMONNAME, and for consistancy with other head of state/government article titles, including Prime Minister of Italy.—The Taerkasten (talk) 15:46, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

  • Mild oppose. It probably is the more common name, but unfortunately is easily confused with the president of the Council of Ministers (i.e. prime minister). At worst, President of the Italian Republic just sounds a little flowery; no one is going to be surprised at hearing the president of Italy thus described. (This is different from the argument that Prime Minister of Italy should actually be moved to President of the Council of Ministers of Italy — in that case I strongly oppose going to the more formal name, but it's different because the surprise factor is much larger.) --Trovatore (talk) 21:08, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
Comment I understand, although I'm not sure I agree that most people would confuse President of the Council of Ministers (i.e. Prime Minister). A disambg may be sufficient to avoid confusion. --The Taerkasten (talk) 21:44, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
It's a close call. For me the balance is against the move, but I won't yell about it if others want to move it. --Trovatore (talk) 22:05, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
  • Support A number of these have come through RM lately, support on WP:COMMONNAME basis.--Labattblueboy (talk) 05:55, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
  • Support under the impression that the President of the Republic is the primary meaning in English for the term "President of Italy". Ucucha 13:39, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
