"Bellissima composizione" what does that mean? Guess the composizione might mean composition. Then what's Bellissima? I googled for Italian-English online dictionary, got a bunch links but didn't get the translation. Folks do you have any idea?

Looks like Italian. Bellissima probably means "most beautiful".

Italian. "Very beautiful composition". Which I would agree with, based on what I've seen in your galleries so far (assuming that's what this is about).

Thank you very much Mr. Silbermann and Jim! It's from here:

From the name Roberto I guess the text might be in Italian. I found, both in photo.net and usefilm.com, there are quite a few comments in Italian, but not any other languages like French, German, Dutch. Why? Is Italy more photographical or?

Italy is probably more photogenic.

We've been trying to stamp out useless comments like that for 2 years now over at Usefilm. Most seem to come from Italians so the language is most likely Italian A translation engine was implemented but many people don't take the time to select their preferred language for posting making their posts show up without a translation option.
It could of course be slang or a local variation which could confuse formal translation engines.

As to the lack of comments in Dutch or German, you'll find that those happen mainly between people that know each other to understand the languages involved.
As your name doesn't indicate your understanding of German you're unlikely to get even Germans to comment in German.
