Translating Latin and Greek Christian authors - a Grammar School competition in Sicily (Italy), April 2013

As a teacher of Latin and Greek in a grammar school of Sicily (Italy), and I would like to inform you about a project my school has been working on for a long time. In fact, every year we organize a competition regarding translations from Greek or Latin christian works, which involves lots of students from different parts of Italy.

The interesting aspect of this event lies in the opportunity for the best students to test their abilities, but at the same time to confront each other in a friendly context. Indeed, during their stay in Acireale, where our school is located, they can also spend some time together visiting the place and tasting the typical sicilian food.

We would be very glad if you wanted to let your students participate in the next competition which will take place in april 2013, which will certainly give the event an international flavour.

In particular, next year the competition will be focused on a translation of a latin text drawn on one of St. Augustin’s works.

For any details you need, do not hesitate to contact me via e-mail (roccos@hotmail.it).

Looking forward to your kind reply,
Yours sincerely
Prof. Rocco Schembra
