    You have to use:
    - "I" before plural male names that begin with consonant. Example: I libri

    - "GLI" before plural male names that begin with vocal or with s+consonant, z, y, ps, pn, gn. Example : Gli orologi Gli studenti Gli gnomi


    - "LE" before female plural names that begin both vocal consonant. Example: Le penne Le api
