How would I go by doing that? I have tried with:
But I get
Error in file(file, "r", encoding = encoding) :
unsupported conversion from 'it_IT.UTF-8' to ''
PS: "it_IT.UTF-8" is what I get under locale when I run sessionInfo()

>> The most likely cause is that your scripts are written in an "8 bit ASCII" encoding (Latin-1 or -9, most likely), while R is running in a UTF8 locale. If that is the cause, the fix is to standardize things to use the same locale. You can convert the encoding of your source file using the iconv utility (in a Terminal window).
