Gruppo 63

“Translate this page” is the goofiest word detourner since Telephone. For Gruppo 63, it spit out a complete poetics:
The Group 63 had the merit of proposing and groped in a renewal rather closed view of Italian literature, but his aristocratic detachment from the common feeling and complexity of the codes of communication made it an elitist movement, accused of the brain.

And "the brain" is exactly the kind of coded compliment I'd expect from the Google Translator, which is known to be an Elitist, and probably liberal, functionary of the United Nations and its sympathizers who, not content with embracing a culture of death, want to smother free enterprise.
