That's very good for Spanish but not for Italian or as they say "close, but no cigar" .

In Italian the "e" can have, depending on the word, both the accento grave (as in "è", "caffè", "tè", "narghilè" etc.) and the accento acuto (as in "poiché", "perché", "finché", "senonché" ecc.).

All other vowels can only have the accento grave. ò à ù ì.

Therefore: la "pietà" di Michelangelo (Alt + 0224)
