ITALIAN LEARNERS: What is the best sounding Italian word in your opinion?
This question's for those who learnt or are currently learning Italian. As a native speaker of this language I often get to hear that Italian sound like a song to those who are not native speakers. For you, what is a specific Italian word or phrase which just activates and expresses this sense of musicality in your head? Why do you think Italian is considered to be musical and romantic? Is it its prosody? Is it the richness of vowels?
