Fairly well known. Verdi, after all, composed three Shakespearean operas 
("Macbeth", "Otello", and "Falstaff"), and started work on another ("Il 
re Lear"), and his collaborator, Arrigo Boito, translated "Antony and 
Cleopatra" for Eleanora Duse and wrote the libretto for Franco Faccio's 
"Amleto".

Carissima Jane,

May I recommend my own page: 
http://pages.unibas.ch/shine/translatorsitalian.htm

It is part of a larger project on 
http://pages.unibas.ch/shine/translators.htm

I WOULD BE GRATEFUL FOR FURTHER ADDITIONS AND CONTRIBUTIONS, as my 
command of all these foreign languages is quite restricted or does not 
exist at all! :)

ciao, Markus
