  • diavolèrio m. noun (regional, northern italy) = fuss, commotion, uproar. not to be confused with diavolerìa (oddity). anecdote: pianist arturo benedetti michelangeli often used this word to criticize a musician (or an orchestra) who played too loud or too fast: "fa(nno) un diavolerio...!"

  • Never heard that before! Which part of northern Italy?

  • hmm, not sure. michelangeli came from brescia (lombardia). some dictionaries do not list it as regional. ah, and of course it has to do with devils making a hell of a mess :-D

  • Maybe it's also archaic... oh, whatever, I can't possibly know all Italian words :-)
