recognising the original Italian from is adjectival.

thus sorry for them, but it is WRONG at all. This is plain english syntax
rules roughly applied to a foreign language: in english you can say both

Actually, you can't. "raising" (if I've got my grammar right) is a transitive verb, ie the subject and object are not the same thing. You mean "rising", which is intransitive, and so can be applied to an object.
