Angela,

You were a little sidetracked?

Naturale>>>naturalizzazione

acquiring citizenship of a country
naturalization (becoming similar to nature)

Sorry Roby, I don't quite get your meaning :?
Sidetracked? Did I make a mistake with the word?

Angela,

I said this because you put naturale which is assoxciation and word for word is to change a letter or two , etc. Then , under the English post, I believe you took the English meaning instead of the word . Did you see the other posts with my comment?

Guilty as charged! (well, only partly..)

Ok Roby, try as I might, I could not come up with anything even vaguely resembling contonatura.
I went for the next closest thing I could find which was naturale.
I'm sorry, maybe I'm just tired, but I thought that naturale means natural?
So where did I go wrong there?
You will have to explain slooowly for the benefit of a brain that has been on the go since 5.30am.

Grazie
