    Luigi knows how to deal with women, they always seek him, including his ex-girlfriends.

    /to seek/ is quite different from /to find/
    /to seek/ id what you do in order /to find/.

    /saper-ci fare con ABC/ :
    essere bravo nel campo ABC

    ci: refers to the context

    -- saperci fare con il nuoto (to be clever in swimmng)
    -- saperci fare con la matematica (to be a good mathematician)
    -- saperci fare con gli sci (to be a good skier)
