“This is the best short work on Nietzsche I have come across. It provides a rich understanding and convincing interpretation of Nietzsche's work from his first published book through the notes of his last productive years. Vattimo also demonstrates an encyclopedic knowledge of more than a century of European Nietzsche scholarship.”―Christopher Cox, Hampshire College

Nicholas Martins' translation is in general, I think, fine (I must express that English is not my mother tongue and I have no Italian), but as far as I can see, the translation is sometimes flawed. For example, on page 53-54 it reads "In fact, he [Nietzsche] shows how art and science are not different from each other because the former is a pure play of the imagination while the other is cold knowledge of thins in themselves." According to the context, however, it must read "In fact, he [Nietzsche] shows how art and science are different from each other not because the former is a pure play of the imagination while the other is cold knowledge of thins in themselves." There are also some misprints of words (I think these are not very important).
Finally, I would like to say that this book is a "must read" for anyone interested in Nietzsche.
