Italian Libya[edit]

Hello! I was doing some categorization work on Libyan history, and am rather puzzled by the existence of two articles and categories for what appears to be the same thing: Italian Libya and Italian North Africa. This is all the more puzzling since the distinction is not made in the Italian WP, as far as I can see. The issue had come up before at Talk:Italian Libya, but apparently nothing was done about it. Before merging the articles myself, I thought I'd better ask the only Italian I know around here ;) Constantine 19:49, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

Hello Constantine, and thanks for writing, and for your mail of last week! I just came back from three weeks vacation (Karpas, I Polis and Roma Urbs). The answer is easy: in North Africa Italy had in the beginning two colonies, Tripolitania and Cirenaica. After the conquest of Fezzan and the appointment of Balbo as general governor, in 1934 the territory was organized as a single colony, named Libya, a name which was "recovered" from Latin by Italian geographers to denominate the territory located between Tunisia and Egypt, and that was already used after 1911, but only in a geographic sense and never in an official form before 1934 (in the guide of Italy of 1929, the territory is still described in two chapters as Tripolitania and Cirenaica, with a small addition about Fezzan and the Sahara oases). The problem is that I never heard the denomination "Africa Settentrionale Italiana" or ASI before: I am afraid that this is a wiki-creation inspired by the much more famous (and official) Africa Orientale Italiana (AOI), a.k.a. "L`Impero", established in 1937. Cheers, Alex2006 (talk) 17:34, 6 October 2014 (UTC)
Hello again and welcome back (and I envy you your vacations)! I knew the administrative history, but is there really any point to having two different articles and categories? Would you not agree that one (for simplicity and clarity's sake at "Italian Libya") would suffice? Constantine 17:39, 6 October 2014 (UTC)
Of course, there is no need for two articles, and Libya is the right name, also because this is the common name in the history books. One can point out the administrative divisions in the "history" section. Alex2006 (talk) 17:45, 6 October 2014 (UTC)
Great. I'll go ahead and perform the merger then. Cheers, Constantine 17:48, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

Ciao Constantine, next step is for sure the Pretorium (I don't like that last red spot on the template :-)): the problem is that next week my wife will come back from the City, and it will be the end again for my free time :-( Alex2006 (talk) 12:20, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

St. Peter's Basilica[edit]

You are well known for edit wars alessandro57. Your reputation for creating discord and stacking users in your favor is well known. And though it is a rediculous thing- to keep changing a page and create an edit war which you started arbitrarily, I will submit for the sake of Wikipedia and the page itself. It is clear that you have a self serving agenda. 04:27, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

February 2015[edit]

You currently appear to be engaged in an edit war. Users are expected to collaborate with others, to avoid editing disruptively, and to try to reach a consensus rather than repeatedly undoing other users' edits once it is known that there is a disagreement.

Please be particularly aware that Wikipedia's policy on edit warring states:

  1. Edit warring is disruptive regardless of how many reverts you have made.
  2. Do not edit war even if you believe you are right.

In particular, editors should be aware of the three-revert rule, which says that an editor must not perform more than three reverts on a single page within a 24-hour period. While edit warring on Wikipedia is not acceptable in any amount and can lead to a block, breaking the three-revert rule is very likely to lead to a block. If you find yourself in an editing dispute, use the article's talk page to discuss controversial changes; work towards a version that represents consensus among editors. You can post a request for help at an appropriate noticeboard or seek dispute resolution. Cpetty9979 (talk) 04:30, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

I don't think I have anything useful to add here. Just note what UNESCO itself says about entries in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity:

Takes note that lavash is shared by communities in the region and beyond, recalls that inscription on the Representative List does not imply exclusivity and encourages the submitting State when implementing safeguarding measures to remain conscious of the element’s larger cultural context in the region;
Recalls the importance of using vocabulary appropriate to the spirit of the Convention and avoiding expressions such as ‘unique’ and ‘original’.

That is, just because lavash is important in Armenian culture, doesn't mean it isn't important in other cultures, and it certainly says nothing about the origins of lavash (a subject about which I have no informed opinion). --Macrakis (talk) 14:30, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

Vatican City voting edit[edit]

Hi, You undid my edit on voting in the Vatican City and I don't think your reasoning is correct. Your reasoning: "Vatican is a state ruled by an absolute monarch, and neither men nor women have the right to vote". This is false. See the Wikipedia page for Vatican City, it states "The politics of Vatican City takes place in an absolute elective monarchy" the key word being elective. The Cardinals do vote and elect the head of state, and Cardinals can only be men under the structure of the Catholic Church. Citizenship here is not the issue, since citizenship in Vatican City is not required for choosing it's head of state. The issue is that only men are allowed to vote in the election, while women are specifically banned. It is important to consider the Vatican City State as an internationally recognized independent state here. I would consider moving my edit to a different place in the page, but I do think it is important information that needs to be in the article and have already considered my placement carefully. I will wait for your response before reverting my edit. I appreciate you leaving your reason on my talk page so we can discuss what is best. -Jon — Preceding unsigned comment added by Flessner89 (talkcontribs) 20:44, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

Istanbul Pogrom[edit]

Dear Alessandro57 I am writing writing to you because I don't know how to access the talk page of the article on Uskudar, my only wish is that you remove the sender claim that women were raped. Because I was born in 1950 and have lived those terrible days. Yes Christians and Jews were attacked, their shops were lotted. But not their private homes. No women was raped. If the contributor insists o this claim he should please provide a reference. The only reference he is providing is the following:

Where in the book by The Mechanism of Catastrophe: The Turkish Pogrom of September 6-7, 1955, and the Destruction of the Greek Community of Istanbul, is there a mention of raped women? The contributor has an agenda. Just check his other contributions and you will see the pattern.

Hi, Alex, how are you? I hope you didn't mind my changing "desecrated" to "deconsecrated" without discussion – I realised that this was just a small error in translation, and took the liberty of fixing it on the spot. Do feel free to ping me if you find yourself in difficulty with similarly little-used words.

Apropos of translation: I noticed that although Santi Simone e Giuda, Rome‎, is apparently translated fairly closely from the it.wp page, there isn't any attribution of the source on the talk page. So I wondered if you'd simply forgotten, or if you just didn't know that the source for an interwiki translation needs to be acknowledged? The {{translated page}} template is handy for this.

question about Roma[edit]

Hello Alessandro57,

The reason why I'm writing you is because I saw you made significant contributions to Italian-related pages and are of Italian ancestry yourself. I was wondering whether you could ask me with this historical question regarding Roma. Do you perhaps know what Empire or Kingdom ruled Rome in 1688? This would help me alot with perfectionizing a recent article of mine which I want to nominate for GA-status in the very near future.

Regards and thanks in advance,

Metropolitan cities[edit]

Ciao Alessandro, ho visto che su wiki sia italiano che inglese esistono le voci "area metropolitan di"; pensavo che siano di maggior valore informative I numeri relative all'arrea metropolitan piuttosto che quelli della città metropolitan, che comprendono le intere vecchie province con comuni spesso oltre I 50 km dal capoluogo. Al limite si potrebbero fare due colonne, una per "area" e una per "city". Che ne pensi? Mauro — Preceding unsigned comment added by Robur.q (talkcontribs) 12:17, 1 June 2015 (UTC)

I will answer on the Talk page of Italy. Alex2006 (talk) 12:46, 1 June 2015 (UTC)

I partially agree with you: it is true that the metropolitan cities are the only official administrative subdivision, but they are quite inaccurate to describe the characteristics of a metropolitan area and they are misleading. For example the Commune of Bardonecchia is 85 km to Turin so it can not definitely considerated part of the metropolitan area of Turin as identified by the Osservatorio Demografico Territoriale del Piemonte of IRES Piemonte that is a an institution of the Regione . The metropolitan area has not an administrative signification, but has a demographic, social and economic significance. As the metropolitan city of Cagliari, actually there is only a bill that the Sardinian Regional Governament has presented few weeks ago. But the bill has to be discussed and (perhaps) approved by the Regional Parliament (the Consiglio Regionale).

Hallo, and thanks for writing! Yes, I will finish the translation until tomorrow evening. At the moment as you noticed it is still in a hybrid state. Cheers, Alex2006 (talk) 08:54, 12 July 2015 (UTC) (moved from [[User talk:Bazj#Re:Canna)
Alessandro57, nearly there, "architectonic" is in the dictionary, but it's certainly not in common use, I had to go look it up. Would architecture be an adequate translation? Bazj (talk) 10:02, 12 July 2015 (UTC)
Bazj, "architettonico" means in this case "used in architecture", i.e. construction industry. Moreover, I am afraid that your correction about Naples and Genoa is not right. In fact, Neapolitan refers here to the whole Kingdom of Naples, not just the city, and the same applies for Genoa (but not for Rome). Then I think that it is better to leave: Kingdom of Naples and Republic of Genoa. Cheeers.Alex2006 (talk) 16:00, 12 July 2015 (UTC)

Palazzo dei Convertendi[edit]

Great work, Alex. I've copyedited the first paragraph of the "History" a little, please check if you think it works. I didn't understand the principle for giving the characters' vital dates, when they're linked and the dates are available at their own article, so I removed some of them for consistency. (Perhaps adding them in other places would have been better.) Anyway, please change back if you think the removals were a bad idea, and if I've got anything else wrong. Bishonen | talk 19:09, 15 July 2015 (UTC).

Hi Alex, Nice article, really nice. Just one small quibble: The location section states that the Palazzo Torlonia is another "reconstructed" building. Are you sure about that? I thought it was one of the few buildings which survived of the destruction of the Borgo, which is why it's not quite as aligned with other buildings on the Via della Conciliazione.

Greetings and congratulations[edit]

Thank you for your efforts on bringing this article up to the standards that it takes for it to appear on the main page of Wikipedia in the "...did you know section". I've been involved in the DYK process, and so I know the time it takes and the coordination required between between editors...well it isn't always easy. So I appreciate your accomplishment. I hope you are encouraged to create even more content! Best Regards,

Thanks a lot! As Italian (and Roman :-)) it is not always easy to write in a decent English. BTW, copyediting is always most welcome! :-) Cheers, Alex2006 (talk) 14:22, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

Editor Bishonen submitted the following nomination for Editor of the Week:

I nominate User Alessandro57, an amazing content contributor who has been diligently and skilfully improving the encyclopedia since 2006, especially in the field of architecture. A few examples of his work: Santi Simone e Giuda, Rome, Cuisine of Corsica, Cistern of Aspar, Florestano Di Fausto, Gül Mosque, Rospigliosi family. I picked these at random, really. He has written, and in a friendly and collaborative way maintains, lots of high-quality articles. The nomination was seconded by User:L235 and User:Yash!.

Congratulations! A much-deserved award to an outstanding editor. Bravo, Alex! Justlettersandnumbers (talk) 19:09, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
Dear @Bishonen:, @Buster7: @L235: and @Yash!:, thanks a lot for this great honor! Actually I`d have preferred this award to be coupled with that of the bunny of the month, but it does not matter, I am happy also to celebrate alone... :-) As kleine dankeschön, I am dedicating to all of you my freshly baked last article, with the secret hope that someone takes the burden of copyediting it (being an Italian, I am aware that this is not an easy task). After all, aren`t we all active in this wonderful cooperative project? :-) Best, Alex2006 (talk) 17:03, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

Your explanation for reverting my edit ("Redundant statement removed: if is not in the EU, it is clear that does not use the euro." -- is not true. "The euro can also be found in other countries and regions which are neither part of the European Union nor the euro area.... Four such entities have adopted the euro as their official currency: the Principality of Monaco, the Republic of San Marino, the Vatican City State and lately also the Principality of Andorra." (source: Therefor my statement is not redundant. Switzerland is similar to the countries mentioned above, in that it is geographically in Europe but not part of the EU, so one could be expected to wonder if it uses the Euro. I would appreciate if you would put back my work. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tzadikv (talkcontribs) 02:12, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

Article on Amatriciano sauce (or is it Amatriciana?)[edit]

Thank you so much for wrifing or editing the article on this sauce. I'm making a birthday dinner for a friend of mine, and I make a terrific sauce for angel hair... But i looked up Pecorino Romano, and found the above arficle. I had never heard of the sauce or guanciale (the meat)... Sorry if I am mis-spelling things, my Italian is poor, and it is almost 1am. I can't wait to try to make this now. I am not certain i will be able to find the meat, as I live in Sacramento, but I will search and try to create this. I also appreciated other articles you have written, not about food. But tonight, I really am happy you shared your knowledge with those Italian food lovers in the U.S. My family comes from Italy (&.Ireland... Do you think I might have been raised Catholic, and loving fresh Italian food???). Sorry... I'm rambling now... Just thanks for sharing. Keep up the good work. Take care.
