|What is "addio"?||
‘Addio’ means goodbye in Italian, but it is much more final than arrivederci. It is used like the French loan word adieu, so ‘farewell’ is the best translation. It is certainly not a word you would use with someone you expected to see again soon.
If you whispered ‘addio, mi amore‘ to your Italian husband as he left for a regular day at work, he would probably spend it looking over his shoulder.
See also ciao.
