by Angelo Morino – Angelo Morino (1950-2007) was an essayist, author and university professor, but above all, a translator. In this article, brilliantly presented by Mario Marchetti, Morino describes the beauty and hard work involved in translating, while comparing the need to «get one’s hands dirty» in the hand to hand battle with everything, from language to purely theoretical quibbling.
