No matter whether I am in Italy, Germany or China, the first question I am asked is «how do you pronounce your name?». My surname is in fact composed of two of the most difficult digrams in the Italian language: gn [ɲ] and sc [ʃ]. Their coexistence within a word can put even native Italian speakers to the test. Hence the idea of using the universal symbols of phonetics to spread a name that is difficult to understand but impossible to forget.
