Italian term or phrase: pignuoli
Cammino per questa citta'. una citta' italiana, ecco tutto, a ben considerare, ad essere esatti, pignuoli anche nel volere e riordinare un ricordo. . .
Traci Andrighetti
pedantic, hair-splitting, nitpicking, petty, demanding, difficult,
Explanation:
It is "pignoli" and there are many interpretations ...

"to be exact, to be demanding even in demanding and putting some order in a recollection..."

I would have made it a play on words.
The Italian text is at its damnedest. Good luck
