The Italian pronunciation of "Arrigo" is as follows:


"A" is as usual, found in "Father." Pay specific attention to the distinct pronunciation of both "RR"s-- each must be spoken. It is most easily accomplished by adding emphasis to the letter immediately before (in this case "A") and working through, slowly. "R"s are also rolled, for the record. "I" is stressed to "EE." Next is a hard "G." "O" is as always, "Oh." [noted -ed]
