May you all have a wonderful successful New Year.

Way back in December 2012 I asked for help with a translation from
Italian to English. Now the pertinent entry has been posted.

Only Three People Understood It: The Prince Consort Who is Dead, a
German Professor Who Has Gone Mad, and I Who Have Forgotten All About
It

Great thanks to Jean Natsinas whose inquiry led QI to formulate this
question and perform this exploration. Natsinas pointed to the
instance in Lytton Strachey’s work. Special thanks to Gregory McNamee,
Damien Hall, Wilson Gray, and George Thompson for Italian translation
advice; any errors are the responsibility of QI.
