    it means "my name is.." or "I am.."

     

    Mi chiamo Antonio.
    My name is Antonio

    /Mi chiamo/ is a verbal voice from the reflexive verb /chiamarsi/,
    which, in turn comes from the non-reflexive and transitive
    verb /chiamare/ (meaning: to call) .

    In questions:
    Come ti chiami ?
    What is your name ?

    To say /I am Giovanni/, we could also say,
    /io sono Giovanni/.
