Just to have an idea:

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

Cavallo:: Horse. This is going to be unpopular: in Italy we eat horse meat. Not everybody likes it but we have butcher's shops only selling horse meat and cold cuts

Assegno:: Cheque or check (in US). In Italy you usually write them only for big amounts of money. Italians still like to use cash whenever they can

Valentino Rossi:: Italian motorcycle racer. According to Sports Illustrated, Rossi is one of the highest earning sports personalities in the world and, according to Italian tax authorities, he is also a tax evader. In February 2008, Rossi announced that he had reached a settlement with the Italian tax authorities: at the very end, he paid 35 million Euros to close the tax case. According to gossip gurus instead... He had a fling with Elisabetta Canalis, George Clooney's ex-girlfriend

Documento:: Document, paper. Good luck if you have to deal with one of the craziest bureaucracies in the world

Riccardo Scamarcio:: Italian actor, a very, very, very handsome one! Good at acting? Who cares about acting when he is on the big screen
