You won't make it in Italy without this app!

Planning a trip to Italy? Dreaming of moving to Florence or Rome?

Then you can’t miss this new app featuring more than 1000 Italian nouns and names you need to know before visiting the Bel Paese. Listen to their pronunciations and read the biting definitions and descriptions.

You will find out what no one else will ever tell you about Italy!

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

You will also discover the dos and don'ts and all those little tricks to deal with the famous "Italian way", sometimes difficult to understand, sometimes upsetting... But always charming!
