New site planned for L'Osservatore - "Era ora"


L'Osservatore Romano has announced that it is to renew its website during the next year (the 150th anniversary of the newspaper.) It is mainly about an agreement with the Spanish newspaper La Razón but includes hints of other possible improvements.

I enjoyed the comment from Paolo Rodari which reminded me of an excellent Italian idiom Era ora. In English this would be something like "about time" but the pithy Italian which would literally be "it was (already) the hour" expresses it in a way that we can't manage so well in English.
