Ciao Matteo!

See how good it was, that i asked for translation: i really
misunderstood the little world 'sciochi' wrong, thought it was a
positive(!) word. :-)

This could have caused some confusion (and anger) in case i had used
that nice word in one of my next E-Mails meaning to say something
nice... :-)))

Fine, fine that you explained it...
