  • The spoken version of cunt in Italian. It's not considered ugly or insultish. The written form is fica. The lighthearted expression"Che figa!", refers to a person "What a looker!". "Che festa figa!" meaning "What a great party!". Italian women have surely reclaimed the word and use its masculine version figo creatively. When they see a good looking man they just might say admiringly "Che figo!"
