How do you refer to an alarm clock going off in Italian?
Per una sveglia, fa squillare o suonare o qualcosa diversa?

I hate the noise my alarm clock makes when it goes off.

My alarm clock goes off every morning at 7.

    Bejosc, concerning the first sentence, I actually wouldn't say more than:

    Odio il rumore della mia sveglia.

    since it isn't supposed to make any other noise, alarm apart.

    In the second sentence you generally want to use the verb "suonare"

    La mia sveglia suona ogni mattina alle 7.

    I hope this helps
