Fascinating word. Italian being a flexible language, there are alot of fun things you could do with it. For example, a plain asshole is a stronzo, but in Italian, nouns have gender, and they also have fun modifiers like diminutives. So you could have the following:

Stronzi: bunch of assholes
Stronza: female asshole (and don't pretend there aren't any)
Stronze: a bunch of stronzas.
Stronzino: a little asshole
Stronzini: a bunch of little assholes
Stronzone: a BIG asshole
Stronzaccio: a big, bad asshole
Stronzaccio: a big, bad, stronza

I am sure there are more.....


Dear Robert,Thank you for your kind words. I was honored to be able to invite a wise social observer and an extraordinary writer to Rome. On behalf of myself and the Elliot staff, we really hope to see you again soon. Besides being a great modern thinker, we discovered you are a wonderful human being.
all our best
