Italian term or phrase: forma a pentadattilo
"Capo Palinuro, poi, proteso sul mare con la sua straordinaria ***forma a pentadattilo***, è uno dei tratti di costa più belli dell’intera regione, con le rocce che cadono a picco nel mare da oltre 50 metri. Nelle cavità degli scogli, nidificano numerose varietà di uccelli e crescono piante e fiori tipici del clima mediterraneo."
