giovanni salvatore

Odi et amo. Quare id faciam, fortasse requiris.

Nescio, sed fieri sentio et excrucior.


Catullo, Carme 85

«L’odio e l’adoro. Perché ciò faccia, se forse mi chiedi,

io, nol so: ben so tutta pena che n’ho.»
(Traduzione di Giovanni Pascoli)

«Odio e amo. Forse mi chiederai come sia possibile;

non so, ma è proprio così, e mi tormento.»

(Traduzione di Salvatore Quasimodo)

«Odio e amo.

Come sia non so dire.

Ma tu mi vedi qui crocifisso

al mio odio e al mio amore.»

(Traduzione di Guido Ceronetti)

«Odio e amo:
fusse che chiedi:
perché lo faccio?
Nunn’o saccio
ma lo faccio
e mme sient’ nu straccio.»
(Traduzione di Stefano Benni)

Tony: Did Nigel ever mention he lived in Italy?

Angela: Not that I remember. I didn’t know him too well. His past is a blank page for me.

Tony: Does the name Salvatore mean anything to you, Ms. Bathgate?

Angela: Aren’t they some large law firm?

Tony: Yes, among other things. They are a major crime family in Sicily, although their influence does not reach as far as it used to back in the days when Giovanni Salvatore ruled their clan. I killed someone for the first time at the age of seventeen and Giovanni Salvatore took a notice of me. You see those were dangerous times and people got killed very often back then. It wasn’t the kill itself what made him notice me, but the way it was done. I won’t bore you with details, the important thing is Giovanni decided to help me cultivate my talents and took me under his wing.

Will Electronic Contact Lenses Monitor Your Health?

by Charles Q. Choi

Thin, transparent electronic devices small and flexible enough to wrap around a human hair could help lead to smart contact lenses and many other applications on or in the body, researchers say. 

Scientists would like the breakthroughs made in electronics over the past century to go into new devices that could improve human health. That’s why research teams around the world are now working on extremely thin electronics that, unlike conventional microchips, are bendable and compatible with the flexible nature of the human body.

Electrical engineer Giovanni Salvatore and his colleagues at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich have developed a simple method for transferring such electronics onto nearly any surface.
