Italian to German translations [Non-PRO]
Italian term or phrase: Ciccio
no context, it is a special boats name
German translation:v.s.
Explanation:
More context would be helpfull!

First possibility: Ciccio is a name so you don't have to translate it ("Michelangelo Crispi, pluricampione del mondo, compagno di barca di **Ciccio** Esposito Leonardo Pettinati e tanti altri Campioni, ha superato il corso ....)

Second possibility: Here in Italy we use "ciccio" e "ciccia" if we meet friends and we like to use a "slang". In reality it means "fat", but not only fat people are called in this way, it's getting a new mode (just look the Panariello-show on saturday evening in TV, there's someone always saying "ciccia").

As a german translation for a boatsname may be "Dickerchen" (is it big boat?)

Again: I would need the whole sentence to say more!!
