I don't want to sound like a fool when I'm describing my bike to someone. How do you pronounce Ferracci?

ferracci has a double C, and thus it gets a "CH" sound, add the "I" on the end and you have "Chee", i believe the first half of the word is self explanatory.

next lesson: marzocchi - cchi sound is 'tricky'. mars-ah-key.

termignoni - "just say termi or termy" and avoid embarrasment.

class dismissed.

I'm Australian (woooo Ashes whitewash!) so I like to mispronounce things, I say:

far-ah-chi
ter-min-yo-ni

If you want to sound like a real wanker (or actually have a good Italian accent, ok, or are Italian) you put the emphasis on the second last syllable.
