|or for those who ever wondered what the word means, it's not slang for a woman's private parts as some have claimed, but local dialect for "poker faced" thus the Ciocc badge of four aces in a cross formation. they called Giovanni Pelizzoli, Ciocc's founder by this nickname.|
|Interesting. Do you know which dialect ? nm||AllUpHill|

|Ciuci (pronounced "Chooch") means Burro.
Cecci (pronounced "Cheech") is a type of bean.
"Chutch" (unsure of the spelling) is the naughty word....
Ciocc (pronounced "Choech") is the bike name, but I understand that it is an acronym for something.

|Thanks. I also heard that it was an old nickname for Pellizzotti (there's some stuff on Google newsgroup archives), but the meaning wasn't clear.|| |
