How in the world do you pronounce.............

"Campagnolo"

I have never really been able to figure out exactly how to pronounce this word and I can't really say that I've ever heard anyone actually say it. Is it exactly like it looks..... CAM PAG NO LO? If not, throw me a bone here!! :confused:

Never really wanted one but probably should know how to say it.

How about Colnago? I've heard it and have said it, but it's one of those words I forget how to say when I want to.

Yup. I would agree with that pronounciation.

Two others asked about... plus a bonus.

Colnago = kul-NAA-go
Ciocc = choach
Dedacciai = de-DA-kai
