    The shadow of her person (body) projected by the light drew a black and enlarged figure on the white wall, encumbering it (the wall) with the width of her shoulders and chest (that is, her body projected a shadow of her shoulders and chest onto the white wall), and touching the vault of the ceiling with (the outline of) her head, around which scattered tufts of her hair (that is, the shadow of her head was projected onto the vault of the ceiling, along with the outlines of her hair). By the word "volta" I am wondering if this scene takes place in a cathedral of some sort. (Again, remember I only had one semester of Italian... :) Just thought I'd give it a try).

     

    l'ombra della sua persona( sua persona???) --- that is the person's shadow you know the dark image projected onto a surface where light is blocked by the shade of an object

    proiettata dal lume si disegnava nera e ingrandita su la parete bianca, INGOMBRANDOLA ( cosa e' la?) this means obstructing or blocking


    con la larghezza delle spalle e del torace , tocando la volta del soffito con la testa attorno a cui (perche a cui?) questo e' un complimento di termine, risponde alla domanda "a chi"? o "a che cosa"?...

    si sparpagliavano i ciuffi di capelli(i don' t understand). questa e' la descrizione.. i capelli che si spargevano....looking at the shadow you can see the shape of the person and how his or her hair would spread
