Q: How do you say this in English (UK)? L’Italia spesso non si ricorda di aver avuto un legame storico con la Libia
A: “Italy often doesn’t remember having had a historic bond with Lybia” - "remember having" is better when we are talking about the past. "Remember to" is often used with a future sense - we have to remember to do our homework ;)

"A historic" or "an historic"; this is a point of dispute between English speakers. (There are many of these!)

I prefer "a historic," but both are in use. If you use "an historic" you should not sound the "h" on historic. You are completely free to use either and regard it as acceptable!
