Reading the article I think they meant English speaker rather than Englishman. Di Noia would be an excellent choice.

Not Englishman, Father, but English speaking.

Yes, yes, Englishman caught my attention, only to be a bit disappointed to find an American with an Italian name!

This from one of the main Italian newspapers.

Says a lot about the Italian understanding of the rest of the world!
