Subject:        Italian Pronunciation

Dear Friends,

Can any confirm the accepted standard of pronunciation, in modern
Italian, for the single and double  "c" and "cc"?

The Latin "Cicero," we were taught to pronounce kick-er-o. But is that
still the pronunciation in Italian? Was/is "Marcello" pronounced
mar-che-lo or mar-se-lo? And is "Baraccini" pronounced bara-see-nee or
bara-chi-nee?  My thanks to anyone who can parse this and/or cite a
source.

Gratias.

Steve
