Given a string in Str1 consisting of a word, return in Ans the sum of the letter-values of each letter in the word.

The letter-values are given here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scrabble_lett...butions#Italian

Example: UNO is in Str1. The program returns U + N + O = 3 + 3 + 1 = 7.

Note: Italian language scrabble features 4 less letters than English language scrabble.

I had a fairly similar solution, but mine took 74 bytes instead.

Here's a cute solution in 104 bytes:
