Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Capo

Capo translates as head in English. It can also be used to denote a leader or chief, as English also does, so 'il capo dello Stato' means 'head of state'.

The head, of course, is the top of the body, containing some of the body parts which come later in the quiz.
2. Occhio

Occhio refers to just one eye in Italian while the plural version is occhi. The word is also used figuratively in expressions like 'chiudere un occhio', which means 'to turn a blind eye' in English.

As it's Italian, you won't be surprised to hear that the word derives from Latin, with the original word being oculus. Despite the similarity, it is not related to occult which does have its origins in Latin too, from occultus meaning 'hidden'.
3. Naso

The English and Italian words are similar as naso means nose, found in the middle of the face. The Italian word is derived from Latin while the English one is Germanic in origin.

The nose is the organ of smell and is the first part of the respiratory system warming and filtering the air that we breathe.
4. Bocca

If you know any French you may have noticed the similarity to the word bouche - both words refer to the mouth.

The mouth is the lowest opening on the human face through which we ingest food. As in English, bocca can be used to refer to openings in non-human places such as the mouth of a volcano or the mouth of a river.
5. Collo

In the anatomical sense collo refers to the neck, although it can also mean a parcel or a piece of luggage. The word 'collo' has the same derivation as the English word 'collar' with both originally being Latin - collum.

The neck is the part of the body which supports the head and links it to the rest of the body.
6. Braccio

Braccio refers to the arm. In English, you may have heard of the brachial artery, the major vessel of the upper arm. In medical terms, the brachium refers only to the upper arm, not the whole arm.

In Italian, braccio can also refer to a unit of length in a similar way to the use of the word foot in English to mean a distance as well as a part of the body.
7. Mano

The Italian word mano refers to the hand of a person. If you want to talk about one of the hands on a clock you need the word lancatta although mano can be used for a hand of cards.

In English, words like 'manual' have the same root, referring to work carried out by hand - as in manual labour.
8. Anca

The anca is the hip in humans The hip is the region between the torso and the leg.

The derivation of the word is Latin - 'hanca' which gives us the English word 'haunch' referring to a similar part of the body, including the hip, buttocks and the top of the leg. The Italians use the word anca to refer to the haunch of an animal.
9. Coscia

Coscia is the thigh, the part of the leg which joins the hip to the knee. Gamba can be used to describe the whole leg from hip to ankle.

The thigh is the part of the leg which contains the femur - the longest and strongest bone in the body.
10. Piede

This is the foot with the word being derived from Latin - you may have noticed the close similarity to the French word pied. The English word of foot derives from Germanic roots although we do have words such as pedestrian, meaning someone who walks on their feet.

The feet are the lowest parts of the body, supporting us as we walk or stand.
