I need a tirade of insults in Italian:

Context is probably important here: an aristocratic female Italian character is responding to provocative insults from a female German.

The German side of it was easy: my German character is blunt and laconic, so I just peppered her dialogue with choice German words and phrases. For the Italian, I want something a little more...flowing. Like the "tirade" example on the Wikipedia article for Italian profanity.
Typhoid and swans - it all comes from the same place.
Google Translate is your friend.

Nah, unless translator programs began to actually translate well when I didn't look. Try googling, however, for online curse libraries or swear-word dictionaries, I know there are things like these.

If you want really specific insults, try looking up forums dedicated to translating Italian.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
