Ever heard of Walter Tobagi? Nope. Not a surprise, neither had I until today. It is the anniversary of his death today, poor chap.
Way back in 1980 on this very day Tobagi, who was a senior journalist working for the Corriere della Sera newspaper, was gunned down here in Milan by the then active Red Brigades. His perceived crime? He dared to criticise the wave of terrorism which was sweeping through Italy at that time.
Stop reading, start speaking
Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

Be free with your speech, but do not take liberties.
