And does anyone understand that Italian is a language that would not need to rely on anyone else from how rich it is? The language of the most beautiful Country in the world. We let the English language conquer increasing spaces of our language. And the most curious thing is that almost always those who use English terms in their speeches can’t speak English.

The abuses of English in the lexicon of Italy and paste by Antonio Zoppetti; Italian is wonderful. How and why we must save our language by Claudio Marazzini, president of the Accademia della Crusca.
