Chce to

It looks as if I've found a Czech expression structurally and semantically very similar to an Italian one: chce to and ci vuole. Chce is from the verb chtít (to want), vuole is from the verb volere (also to want). The sentence I've seen Chce to odvahu (Courage is necessary, We need courage) could be expressed in Italian with Ci vuole coraggio.
