There are numerous exceptions to the rule of using italics for foreign words and phrases. Such as quotations entirely in another language ("Julius Caesar said, 'Veni, vidi, vici'"); non-English titles of works published within larger works (poem, stories, essays, articles), which are placed in quotation marks and not italicized ("El sueno," the title poem by Quevedo); proper nouns (the Entente Cordiale).
