Soooo special and patient also! The group of guys I met this time was amazing! We have shared wonderful moments laughing, shooting and sharing our common love about photography, improving our skills with the Master Yan Pekar and also with local photographer Sala..
Marrakech is a magical place … when we left the city we were crying for how much we will miss it and will miss the old and the new lovely friends. The city of Marrakech is a mix of colors, people, animals, traffic jams, sunshine and thousands of handmade shoes, hats, bags, oils, perfumes that catch your eyes and nose instantly and never let you go. When you've just been gobsmacked by the absolute absence of rules and order through the streets, immediately after you are amazed by the smile of people that you've never met before. It's a strange city that fascinates the heart in a strange way.
Let Me Italian You project puts together people from all over the world, and in just a few days you can learn a lot about photography, life and humanity itself. It's the second experience for me with this project and it's really going better and better. Many thanks to Massimiliano and Gabriele.
I just came back from Discover Marrakesh!! It was an unforgettable experience. I meet so many wonderful people and we became a small international family during these couple of days.

Ecco cosa mi ha fatto Marrakech: mi ha catturata, in un mattino di sole, mentre correvo non so dove, strappandomi, con inaspettata furia, un eterno sorriso. Io di stelline ne metterei millemila! My experience in Discover Marrakech II was unforgettable! The Massimiliano and Gabriele organized the trip very well and took care of the partecipants before, during and after the trip!

Marrakech is a dream and sometimes dreams comes true… this has been my second experience with Let me Italian You, the first one was in Barcelona! So at the end this experience just overwhelmed me!

Thank you letmeitalianyou for the perfect organization and planning, and especially, for taking such a great care of us! I felt part of the big, loud and crazy familia.
Ciao Ragazzi! Marrakech is a city full of colors, sounds, smells, emotions I was very worried at the beginning, a little bit for everything; when you decide to leave alone you never know what will wait for you. It was a challenge. Exceeded great. I think I've never experienced so many emotions like these days.
I met people from 10 different nationalities, a very formidable group. An experience difficult to explain if you do not try it yourself. Thank you all for this fantastic experience. I left a piece of my heart there. I hope to see you guys again soon, anywhere in the world. A special thanks goes to the Let me Italian you twins, for giving life to all this.
We will meet again on the next trip! I wish the world was filled with more such kind, nice and positive people like you pizzaholics! I had a wonderful, unforgettable time.

It's a whirlwind of wonderful emotions that has bound me and my colleagues in this experience of Marrakch 3. We were immersed in exciting colors that make light turn us photographers.. We were pampered by our fantastic brothers Ragusa, who as always managed to unite different photographers but with a common denominator respect, friendship and involvement. The trip to Marrakech was so well organized.
We visited a lot of fantastic places, the Souk was great for "street and Urban photograpy",. I learned a lot and made great photos. I have also got a lot of new friends with the same interest in photographing. It was such a great team changing experiences and ideas. Looking forward to meet some of them agin on Let me Italian you's next trip.
I was lucky, this photographic project gave me the opportunity to visit Marrakech in fluency and security.

A truly magical place. Thank you Let me italian you, for the competence and kindness, I never felt lonely, the transfers and visits were all taken care of beautifully. It could not be better! A group of beautiful people, all united by the same passion. A beautiful experience, certainly to be repeated. Thanks to Gabriele and Massimiliano, two really smart guys and I wish them to continue with their positiveness that distinguishes them.
I recommend this experience to everyone, it will certainly be unforgettable, as it was for me. Thank you for letting me ex perience this experience. You are able to put together good people, beautiful places and many opportunities to make unique photos, creating a wonderful combination of memories.

It was also a pleasure to exchange about our respective cultures, knowledge and expertise. On behalf of the Kounouz Family, we thank Gabriele and Massimiliano and all the Let me italian you team for choosing Kounouz to be part of the Discover Marrakech Experience!
Interesting, informative, well-organized project - I'd advise it to everyone. Especially if you need an adventure, but you are scary to go alone or have no time to organize it. Four days in the company of surprisingly consonant people, in spite of different languages, different experiences, different cameras.
Excellent organization - everything is thought out, every detail is provided. And all this is made by a fantastic couple - twins Gabriele and Massimiliano. Guys, I hope to participate in your projects again! Travel is an experience that changes you in everything. Learn to know your limits, your feelings, and your emotions. Everything is different. Compare yourself with different cultures, meet new people, strange languages and smells, colors, styles.
But more than anything else it reinforces you. Every experience makes you feeling different, yes in the same body, but different in your soul. It's always worth it! A city that is a chaos of people, colors, spices, markets, life! I was so lucky to meet and share this adventure with wonderful people. There is not two without three, see you soon Let me Italian You.
During the project in Marrakech I was discovered a new culture, new colors, a new way of living. Everything was different from our world but it was an amazing experience! Thanks for the opportunity! Highly recommendable! It is the perfect combination between passion, traveling, knowing new cultures, new people. It is an unforgettable experience! Thanks ragazzi I can not wait to see you again and make new memories by your side knowing more places and wonderful people!
I wish you all the best! Marrakech it's such a beautiful place. Once again I've been enjoying another trip with Let me italian you and once again it's been an incredibly adventure. He struck metal against wood with force. Two challenging eyes stared back at him from the peephole, and he adjusted the cowl on his head. The chain was removed to reveal an old woman on the threshold. She led him down a dank and gloomy corridor, and invited him to follow her up the stairs.
They arrived at the upper floor and the old woman lit a lantern. The room was bare, the flaking walls darkened with soot. Incense burned on the grate in the fireplace but it was not enough to cover the stench of disease, which was worsened by the suffocating August heat. A man was lying on an iron bed in a corner of the room. Nei prossimi mesi, vorrei condividere alcuni dei miei brani preferiti fra le mie traduzioni. Ho scelto questo brano per la tenerezza che mi suscita verso la protagonista e per la sua infinita voglia di amicizia:.
Dal giorno in cui la nonna le aveva detto che solo una bambina bianca come lei poteva esserle amica, Adimu aveva iniziato a fantasticare di una compagna di giochi dalla pelle candida. Recandosi a scuola, vide una bambola abbandonata a terra. Era bianca, del suo stesso colore. Era sporca, con un foro al posto di un occhio e priva di un braccio. Un ciuffo di capelli biondi incrostati di fango le pendeva da un lato.
Il vestito era un brandello di stoffa che rimase attaccato a terra nel sollevare il giocattolo. Era stata abbandonata; sarebbe stata sua e avrebbe portato il suo stesso nome, Adimu. From the day her grandmother had told her that only a white girl could be her friend, Adimu dreamed of a playmate with pale skin. She thought about her so often that she was able to describe her features in detail. Going to school one morning, Adimu saw a doll on the ground, and it was her same color. She picked it up. It was dirty and had a hole in place of an eye, and it was missing one arm.
A tuft of blond hair, caked with mud, hung on one side. Its dress was little more than a scrap of fabric. Adimu examined every detail of the doll that had fallen into a state of disrepair, and, in a fit of compassion, she hugged it to her chest. It had been abandoned. Along the road to school, she found a place to hide her treasure, behind a bush that was before the clearing where the other students crowded. In the evening she showed her grandmother what she had found. I hid her so no one will take her.
Nkamba laughed. One of the best parts of being a translator is the chance to work on many different types of texts. Non sto dicendo che un rapporto diretto fra autore e traduttore sostituisce la revisione o la correzione della bozza; anzi, occhi nuovi sono sempre importanti. Speravo con tutto il mio cuore di arrivare in fondo alla traduzione senza incorrere in errori gravi. A un certo punto, sudavo per ogni parola. Credo che questa mia esperienza sia molto simile a quella di un autore quando mette il suo manoscritto in mano a un esperto.
Gli autori, e spesso anche i traduttori, non possono permettersi di fare a meno. Working with living authors is a different experience: I can discuss the rough spots with my client and together we can find solutions. With an author who died a hundred years ago, the process is different. This experience is, I believe, very close to what an author faces when she turns her original manuscript over to an expert. Whether the aim is to have it published traditionally or to self-publish, the professional editor is a fundamental figure in the process and a step which authors, and frequently also translators, cannot afford to skip.
Sono stata, in parte uguali, ghostwriter, editor e traduttrice. Ogni sera dal , Chef Bruno prepara la pasta per bambini nella contea di Orange in California che altrimenti andrebbero a letto con lo stomaco vuoto. E non solo. Io, come traduttrice, gioisco di ogni libro che passa dalla mia scrivania e rimango sempre toccata in modo unico e profondo. Nel , disponibile anche in italiano.
And not only. Books can tell an infinite number of stories and, as a translator, I love how each one that comes my way touches me uniquely and deeply. English translation below. Grazie Rachel per il tuo tempo. I nostri progetti sono tanti. Per esempio, solo per citarne qualcuno, la creazione di liste per le biblioteche scolastiche, pubbliche, e accademiche; dei premi per letteratura in traduzione; e lo sviluppo di una piattaforma per promuovere le traduzioni auto-pubblicate. Ci sono grande differenze in Italia al livello regionale nel uso delle biblioteche. Puoi aiutarci a capire il ruolo delle biblioteche negli Stati Uniti?
Molte biblioteche si vedono come ponti fra la varie popolazioni nella loro zona, offrendo servizi agli individui che sono diverse culturalmente, etnicamente e linguisticamente. Offrono un luogo per tutti, specialmente quelli marginalizzati, tipo le persone LBGT, gli immigranti e i rifugiati, e le minoranze etniche. Secondo te, sono scettici i lettori americani verso i libri in traduzione? Non credo che il problema sia che i lettori americani sono reticenti verso la letteratura tradotta. Invece credo che non sanno dove trovare libri che vengono da altre parti del mondo che potrebbero interessarli.
Quindi non si rende conto della offerta dei libri in traduzione. Come traduttrice dal tedesco, quale sfide trovi nel rendere un libro straniero per i lettori anglosassoni? La tua piccola casa editrice, Weyward Sisters Publishing, pubblica libri tradotti in inglese dal tedesco di genere noir e polizieschi scritti da autrici in Germania, Austria e Svizzera.
Conosci altri piccole case editrici che pubblicano traduzioni per un settore ristretto, come voi? Per esempio, Le French Book pubblica crime fiction francese in traduzione, mentre Plamen, Pica Pica, Istros, Gallic e Kurodahan pubblicano libri in traduzione da regioni bene precisi. Vorrei pensare che il futuro sia positivo. Ma il fatto sta che la maggior parte dei lettori americani non hanno letto libri contemporanei in traduzione, punto.
Comunque, si spera che attraverso il lavoro di queste case editrici i lettori scopriranno culture letterarie ricche e interessante. Translator Rachel Hildebrandt is the mastermind behind the Global Literature in Libraries Initiative , a growing force in the diffusion of international literature among American libraries. Recently, Rachel agreed to answer some of my questions about GLLI and the outlook for books in translation. GLLI was the brainchild of a small group of translators and publishers who realized that librarians would make natural allies in their efforts to celebrate and promote international literature.
Back in Winter , we started out as a small email circle, and soon our base began to grow with the addition of an increasing number of librarians. We recognized early on the need to build connections with the professional associations in which librarians are active. I joined ALA as an affiliate member, and along with several librarians, I successfully proposed a session for the ALA conference on international literature and its importance to libraries. Since that time, our numbers have grown and our engagement is expanding. In the short-term, one of our major goals is to situate ourselves organizationally such that we can become partners with libraries and library organizations of all kinds.
We are exploring some options for fiscal sponsorship, which would provide us with umbrella nonprofit status. With this status, we would be in a good place to apply for grants and corporate sponsorships in order to create a sustainable base for us and to increase the reach of our efforts and projects. Our projects are varied, including: age- and genre-specific book lists for school, public and academic libraries; exploring options for new translated literature awards; pulling together library-focused pan-publisher catalogs across the international literature space; sessions and engagement at library conferences; developing platforms to promote self-published translations among librarians and library users.
Long-term we would like to build connections with specific aspects of the library framework, such as partnerships with library venders, aggregators, e-content providers, and such. Ultimately we want to become the go-to resource for librarians seeking to globalize their collections and programs to meet the changing needs of their diverse populations of children, teen and adult users. One statistic regarding Italian state-run libraries mentions 1.
Can you shed any light on American libraries and their users? American libraries have spent the past 20 years reinventing themselves. They still are repositories of countless books, but the library of today is just as much shaped by the services it provides, as it is by the number of books in its collection. Libraries have become community spaces and hubs unlike anything else we have today. They are homes to book clubs, artists in residence programs, teen services, legal services, computer labs, maker labs, writing spaces, you name it. Many libraries see themselves as the bridges between the diverse populations in their jurisdictions, and they are servicing individuals from diverse cultural, ethnic, and linguistic backgrounds.
Libraries are positioned to be truly communal spaces, and they conceive of themselves as havens, ports of call and safety, for anyone and everyone. Library users truly are a cross-section of American sociey in the breadth of its diversity and nuances. Do you think American readers are skeptical about reading books that have been translated? And if so, how do you think their reluctance can be overcome? What I feel is sooner the case is that they are not knowledgeable about where to find international works in general and the kind of works that would interest them specifically.
They also are not aware that in the globalized world in which we live, they really NEED to be reading globally. With that said, unless you are a reader of international literature journals or a follower of certain presses, how is the average reader going to easily find these works? On the other hand, I feel like many of the international works being celebrated in the major review platforms fall solidly into the literary fiction camp.
To be honest, many US readers are avid consumers of genre fiction. Yes, we need the dark, obscure, genre-breaking works, but to be honest, what is going to win the day for US readers are authors like Backman and Koch and Jonasson. At the same time, readers need to know that these works are non-Anglophone works so they can recognize their inherent diversity and learn from the alternate perspectives that are expressed by authors around the world.
I think that the answer to overcoming skepticism is a complicated one. I do firmly believe that one answer is libraries, which have a long tradition of being tastemakers for readers, young and old.
