Friday, 1 April 2016
On 5th April 2016 at 16:30, at the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei in Roma, the first copy of the first volume of the "Trattato di Rosh haShanà", published by La Giuntina, will be handed to the President of the Italian Republic, Sergio Mattarella. The work is the first translation of the Babylonian Talmud into Italian, carried out by a team of translators, copy editors and computer scientists thanks to the 'Traduco' system, developed by ILC-CNR in the framework of the project "Traduzione Talmud Babilonese". The project, signed by a memorandum of understanding among the Presidency of the Council of the Italian Ministers, the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research, the National Research Council of Italy and the Union of the Italian Jewish Communities, is coordinated by the Chief Rabbi in Roma, Riccardo Di Segni.
