Did you see this autobytel heathen saying "quadri-fug-leo", and then complaining about how hard it is to say? No wonder he has trouble pronouncing it:

Then there is this equally useless pronunciation guide (quadri-fog-leo):

I'll trust the lady at the Alfa-Romeo museum in Milan (this is a very good video too):

quadri-foe-leo, it should simply roll off the tongue

Brava signorina!

For practice, post your best attempts at pronnunciation:

passacaglia
seraglio
barbaglio
scandaglio
battaglio
consiglio
millefoglio

and extra credit:

gnocchi
superleggera

Great video! :D

LOL is this a test on which G's are silent? Funny enough the only words I recognize are the extra credits. I'll have to pick up Italian one of these days.

Passacaglia is a baroque musical style. Reference JS Bach's Passacaglia and Fugue (sometimes simply called THE Passacaglia), considered by many people to be the pinnacle of the style.

I do not recognize the other "silent G" words, but I don't even pretend to know any Italian.

My fave so far is one YouTube "reviewer" who slipped up and called it a Quadriformagio ! Seriously. I'll have to look up the YouTube video and post the link as proof.
