We found that Italian language makes fairly easy reading for anyone who has had the usual school Latin and who knows some French. It is a very beautiful language, this one formed by Dante, Petrarch and Boccaccio from the degenerate Latin of the Dark Ages.
It is liquid and musical beyond all others and, comparatively, it is not hard.
Every letter has its value. Every word, almost without exception, ends in a vowel, which has a full syllabic value. Its idioms are much like the French. One odd quirk it has which should be understood at the outset.
The Vous of French, the Sie of German (as against the familiar tu and du) becomes in Italian Lei, which is literally she. It is a survival from obsolete forms of politeness (Your Excellence, Your Worship, etc.) which were feminine.
One thus says to a heavily bearded railway porter, “Ha Lei monetà? (Has she change?) meaning, “Have you change?” And to the albergatore (hotel proprietor), be he ever so masculine, one says, “Ha Lei una stanza?” i. e. Has she a room? meaning “Have you a room?” The plural of Lei is Loro but this is very unimportant.
Now we are determined in this lesson-by-a-duffer to be rigorously brief, to set down only the prime essentials. Here they are:

While gripping the latest rains in Italian Riviera and Portofino these days, there were spells towards evening that have given splendid sunset on a flat sea rich in color pastel shades, small gozzi departing for fishing, and the special effects sky over the sea.
The sun begins to decline and thus the shadows, come to life at every mention, is the color shades of yellow, red and the dell’azzurro.
We recommend wonderful walks from Santa Margherita Ligure along the road leading to Portofino. Until Paraggi are virtually suspended over the sea. Bring water with you. If you have a dog, there is a beach reserved for their own shortly after the Regina Elena Hotel. There is fresh water available.
We recommend you always dry your little friends.
