Google's machine translation is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia.

Marco Foscarini (born Venice, February 4, 1696 – died there March 31, 1763) was a Venetian poet, writer and statesman who served as the 117th Doge of Venice from May 31, 1762 until his death. He studied in his youth in Bologna, and was active as a diplomat, serving as ambassador to Rome and Turin; he also served as the Procurator of St. Mark for a time. He was succeeded as Doge by Alvise Giovanni Mocenigo. Liceo classico Marco Foscarini, Venice, was named after him to honour his "History of Venetian literature".
