Del tradurre e altri scritti

di Manara Valgimigli 

Anche tradurre è, come far musica e poesia, come dipingere un quadro e scolpire una statua, sforzo e anelito di conquistare  e di possedere la propria realtà.

Translation and other works

by Manara Valgimigli 

Translation, too, is – like making music or poetry, like painting a picture or sculpting a statue – the effort and yearning to conquer and possess one’s own reality.
