Foreign languages and translations
My native is Italian and I am fluent in Japanese, Spanish and Porteguese. Besides, I have a good knowledge of French and a basic knowledge of Chinese. Currently I am learning Turkish.
I also do translations from Japanese to Italian. These include the novel GO by Kazuki Kaneshiro and some works by Haruki Murakami (also a couple of chapters of 1Q84).
