Did you know that the very first precursor of machine translation as we know it today is an Italian?
His name is Federico Pucci, and he presented his first study on a “mechanical translator” ninety years ago.
Here is his story: https://translation20.blogspot.com/2019/03/2019-90-years-on-from-federico-puccis.html
Hope you'll enjoy

Hi Tom,

I've post something in Italian (and also in French, if I remember correctly) but never in English. And this one is the most comprehensive of all my previous posts on this topic.
