Calimera massacreEdit

On 10 May 1906 the Milanese proletariat protested against the massacre of workers that occurred in Calimera di Lecce (Lecce province).
— Buttà, Fausto (2015). Living Like Nomads: The Milanese Anarchist Movement Before Fascism. Cambridge Scholars Publishing. p. 113. ISBN 978-1-4438-8159-3. (for fn81, see p. 118)

Would anyone have any further information on the Calimera killings mentioned here? I haven't found anything in English-language searches or the related WP articles (enwp or itwp) but perhaps they're in Italian sources, perhaps under a different name? If it really was a massacre I'd expect more coverage than what I've found thus far. Edit: This listing ("Calinera" typo?) has two dead, three wounded on April 30, 1906, if the date helps. czar 07:43, 19 December 2020 (UTC)


Hi everyone! I'd like to tell you that because of the Wiki MILab project organised by Wikimedia Italy in conjunction with the Liceo Don Milani of Acquaviva delle Fonti, some students are going to translate articles about Apulian towns from Italian to English (and German and Spanish), so maybe you can keep an eye on the articles that we'll link project page gradually. I'll tell you when we finish publishing them, so you can maybe check and correct them and reassess their quality rating. --Ferdi2005 (talk) 18:32, 21 December 2020 (UTC)

Japanese visits to Italy in the 1600sEdit

I'm working on saving Hasekura Tsunenaga from being demoted from FA status. A number of the references that are needed have to do with Catholicism, including records from Spain, Italy, and other places in Europe. I've made a list at Talk:Hasekura Tsunenaga#Refs needed, and any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks! ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 00:23, 31 December 2020 (UTC)

I'm currently working to translate the title of this book. My transcription of the title page is as follows (broken up by line to make it easier to compare for translation):
del regno di voxu
del Giapone,
dell'antichita, nobilta,
e valore del suo re
Idate Masamune,
delli favori, c'ha fatti
alla Christianità, e desiderio che tiene d'esser Christiano,
e dell'aumento di nostra santa Fede in quelle parti.
E dell'Ambasciata che hà inuiata alla S.tà di N. S. Papa PAOLO V.
e delli suoi successi, con altre varie cose di edificatione,
e gusto spirituale de i Lettori.
Dedicata all S.tà di N. S. Papa PAOLO V.
Fatta per il Dottor Scipione Amati Romano, Interprete,
& Historico dell'Ambasciata.
Appresso Giacomo Mascardi.
Con licenza de'Superiori.
In Roma, MDCXV
My feeble attempt at translation leaves some gaps due to my almost non-existent Italian ability. Words in bold are ones I couldn't translate:
of the reign of voxu
of Japan,
of antiquity, nobility,
and value of his king
Idate Masamune,
of the favors he has done
to Christianity, and the desire he holds to be a Christian
and to increase our holy faith in those parts.
And of the Embassy that inuiata the Holy Age of N. S. Pope PAUL V.
and of his successes, with other various things of edification,
and spiritual taste of the Readers.
Dedicated to the Holy Age of N. S. Pope PAUL V.
Made for Doctor Scipione Amati Romano, Interpreter,
& Historiian of the Embassy.
Attended by Giacomo Mascardi.
Under license from (his) Superiors.
In Rome, 1615
Any help is appreciated! ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 20:50, 5 February 2021 (UTC)
The inuiata should probably be inviata, "sent". --Trovatore (talk) 20:58, 5 February 2021 (UTC)
That would make sense. Probably a typo, then? You can see the title page here (you may have to scroll down). ···日本穣 · 投稿 · Talk to Nihonjoe · Join WP Japan! 21:11, 5 February 2021 (UTC)
I wouldn't call it a typo. In that era u and v were considered two different ways of writing the same letter. --Trovatore (talk) 17:59, 6 February 2021 (UTC)
