From where do you know that \205 and \212 stand for à and è etc.?

Because I know the italian words the program is outputting: "già" ->
"gi\205", "è" -> "\212".

Can you check whether these are encoded in some DOS code page? No ISO 8859/ISO Latin encoding and neither Unicode uses the range

        ;   oct   dec   hex
        ? = 200 = 128 = 80
        ? = 239 = 159 = 9F

to encode valid characters which can be presented as glyphs. They're used as so-called 8-bit control characters. DOS code pages, Mac encodings, and the NeXT encoding are different. (HP Roman too?)
