Just to have an idea:
Aeroporto: Airport. Speaking about airport efficiency, Italy ranks very low compared to European standards: bad planning, delay and loss of luggage, when it is not stolen. And it looks like Fiumicino Airport (Rome) is the worst "aeroporto" in Italy and in Europe
Mario Monti: Italian economist, academic and politician. He is the one who gave us our dignity back abroad: he saved Italians from the embarrassment of being represented by Silvio Berlusconi
Gabinetto: The same as "Bagno", but less refined. It is more like the British "loo". Most of the Italian public toilet are BYO: Bring Your Own Toilet Paper!
Miuccia Prada: Italian fashion designer. True radical chic: she is a communist but also an icon of the wealthy and the mighty. Her brands are Prada and Miu Miu
Carabinieri: The Carabinieri is the common name for the Arma dei Carabinieri, a military corps with police duties. Italians generally know so many jokes about them but they completely ignore the difference between Carabinieri and Polizia. If you are in trouble dial 112
