These are famous italians ? The pics of some are somewhat vague, and several are obviously only famous to a small group of people. Not including me, unfortunately...

Yes, these are all extremely famous Italians, except for maybe the last one. I could also see how one wouldn't recognize Fellini. But feel free to suggest some more famous Italians that I could use instead.

Adriano Celentano, that's the name I was trying to remember :-)

There's a famous Italian called Zucchero?! Zucchero means sugar...

Don't think there's any need to change the quiz though. What's the point of calling for a quiz to only have questions that you know all the answers to?

by far, the most famous italian porn actress was Moana Pozzi. Her name also explains why a certain disney movie had its title changed in the Italian version.

LOL, her name is Cicciolina, not Ciccolina, and yes, she's hungarian, her name is Ilona Staller. BTW, I'd be shocked if any Italian would recognize Fabio. I only know about him because he was named on some American TV show I was watching and went to look him up on Wikipedia. He's a total nobody in Italy.

Another tough selection. It's amazing how some countries have lots of famous people and other seem to have fewer. I assume the language issue means we are more likely to 'know' English speakers. Still none the wiser on the last two, or the fourth one.

As an italian I didn't know who the last one was (I had to search the picture on Google Images given the fact that there isn't his surname); after I found out who this person is...honestly I still believe his presence here is a bit disappointing.

I don't think I would have gotten Armani if not for the fact he was standing in front of his company's logo. Though he does look like a fashion designer: old, dried up, but obviously vain, trying and failing to look young or good, but instead simply looking unnatural, and honestly in no place to be judging other people on their looks or aesthetic value.

Wow, aren't you bitter! Armani actually looked very good for decades, before really falling off a cliff recently. Anyway, your description, which I agree on, would fit any fashion designer in the world.
