Antonio Canova Nationality[edit]

Hi Alessandro, I hope you are good. I would kindly ask you if you can give your opinion here [[1]]. It is a talk about Canova ethnicity/nationality. The talk got a bit tumultuous, so a user asked for a third opinion, and I decided to give mine. Since you are experienced, it would be a pleasure if you join the talk :)--Walter J.

Editor of the Week : nominations needed![edit]

The Editor of the Week initiative has been recognizing editors since 2013 for their hard work and dedication. Editing Wikipedia can be disheartening and tedious at times; the weekly Editor of the Week award lets its recipients know that their positive behaviour and collaborative spirit is appreciated. The response from the honorees has been enthusiastic and thankful.

The list of nominees is running short, and so new nominations are needed for consideration. Have you come across someone in your editing circle who deserves a pat on the back for improving article prose regularly, making it easier to understand? Or perhaps someone has stepped in to mediate a contentious dispute, and did an excellent job. Do you know someone who hasn't received many accolades and is deserving of greater renown? Is there an editor who does lots of little tasks well, such as cleaning up citations?

Please help us thank editors who display sustained patterns of excellence, working tirelessly in the background out of the spotlight, by submitting your nomination for Editor of the Week today!

San Giacomo Scossacavalli[edit]


Corsican Guard[edit]


Hello, Alessandro57 -- I have finished copy-editing Corsican Guard. There are two things I want to ask you about so that I can make the sentences clearer:

1) In the first paragraph in the section Corsican Guard#Origin and formation of the Corsican Guard you have this phrase:

  • during the 15th century Corsicans began to settle in Senese and Latial Maremma

I looked in both the Siena article and the Lazio article and I wonder whether your adjective forms are correct. In the Siena article I saw "Sienese" as the adjective, not "Senese". In the Lazio article I did see "Latium" as an alternate name for Lazio, but the adjective "Latial" appears nowhere in the article. When I did a search for "Latial" to find anything at all in WP with that term, I found only a reference to an ancient area of Latium that existed in B.C. times. Because of that, I'm wondering whether "Latial" is really the correct adjective for relatively modern Lazio/Latium.

2) In that same paragraph is the following sentence:

  • Originally, the Corsicans were only able to find humble jobs in the city and its surroundings, mostly in the areas of sheep breeding and wine trading (the island's wines were much sought after in that period), the only exceptions being a career in the church, as a servant in the Vatican palaces or as a soldier of the Pope or some of the Roman baroni; consequently, they did not become well integrated in Roman society.

Besides the fact that good writing calls for "parallel structure" – that is, that in a list of items in a sentence, the items are all of the same grammatical structure and type – and you don't have that here:

  • a career in the church
  • a servant in the Vatican palaces
  • a soldier of the Pope or some of the Roman baroni

All three are noun phrases, but the second and third are people while the first is not. But besides that, it is not clear whether "as a servant in the Vatican palaces or as a soldier of the Pope or some of the Roman baroni" are two examples of "a career in the church" or are two additional and separate examples of exceptions to occupations such as sheep breeding and wine trading. Your answer will tell me how to make this sentence clearer. If they are two examples of "a career in the church", then "a soldier of...some of the Roman baroni" wouldn't fit, would it?  – Corinne (talk) 20:08, 9 May 2016 (UTC)

Hallo @Corinne:, and thanks for copyediting! About your points:
  • Nice catch! I think that the adjectives are "lazial" and sienese;
  • The sentences refer to three different professions:
    • Priest
    • Servant
    • Soldier
maybe one could write: "the only exceptions being: a career in the church; as a servant in the Vatican palaces; or as a soldier of the Pope or some of the Roman baroni" but I think that this is an Italian construction... Cheers, Alex2006 (talk) 17:59, 10 May 2016 (UTC)
How about changing "a career in the church" to "a priest"? "...: as a priest, a servant in the Vatican palaces, or a soldier in the employ of the Pope or the Roman baroni". This way, you avoid having to repeat "as".  – Corinne (talk) 02:25, 11 May 2016 (UTC) Were there other careers in the church besides starting out as a priest and working one's way up? I suppose two other careers in the church were "a servant in the Vatican palaces" and "a soldier for/in the employ of the Pope". It's too bad we can't just include all these in careers in the church. The only thing that doesn't fit is "a soldier for/in the employ of...the Roman baroni".  – Corinne (talk) 02:28, 11 May 2016 (UTC)
Yes @Corinne:, I think that "a priest" is correct, being the starting point of a career in the church, exactly like a servant and a soldier are also the starting points of other type of careers. Alex2006 (talk) 15:55, 12 May 2016 (UTC)

Hey[edit]

Hey Alesandro, how are you doing my friend? :) Enjoying the splendid weather I assume? Btw, though you might have had already noticed; amongst the masses of socks who have been blocked in the past few days, Steverci has also been CU indeffed as a sock of a long-term sock abuser.

Europe 10,000 Challenge invite[edit]

Hi. The Wikipedia:WikiProject Europe/The 10,000 Challenge has recently started, based on the UK/Ireland Wikipedia:The 10,000 Challenge. The idea is not to record every minor edit, but to create a momentum to motivate editors to produce good content improvements and creations and inspire people to work on more countries than they might otherwise work on. There's also the possibility of establishing smaller country or regional challenges for places like Germany, Italy, the Benelux countries, Iberian Peninsula, Romania, Slovenia etc, much like Wikipedia:The 1000 Challenge (Nordic). For this to really work we need diversity and exciting content and editors from a broad range of countries regularly contributing. If you would like to see masses of articles being improved for Europe and your specialist country like Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon, sign up today and once the challenge starts a contest can be organized. This is a way we can target every country of Europe, and steadily vastly improve the encyclopedia. We need numbers to make this work so consider signing up as a participant and also sign under any country sub challenge on the page that you might contribute to! Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 02:03, 6 November 2016 (UTC)

I replied to your comment on the talk page. I do not contest the facts, but the use of the sources and the actual translation. The current version of the article gives undue emphasis to the events, at least in its current format. Silvio1973 (talk) 12:25, 6 November 2016 (UTC)
