    Well, who really calls it the “cornicione”? Italians? Imagine: stuffed-cornicione at Pizza hut, Domino’s, and other pizzeria chains.

    Comets have two tails. One of them always points away from the sun.

    Cornicione. Italian Renaissance wall-cornice proportioned to be a suitable crowning feature of the entire façade and mass of a large building, usually astylar, such as a palazzo, e.g. Palazzo Strozzi, Florence (begun 1489).

    Given how inedible the edge of the pizza is in most cases,the word makes sense.

    The comet’s dust tail points away from the direction of the comet. The comet’s ion tail points away from the sun.

    Canis Familiaris is the real name for a dog, I don’t use that name either.

    If a guy named “Graziano” doesn’t know his “crust” from a “cornice”, what has happened to my USA?

    I wonder if UConn is looking at recruiting Witney…

    The crust is the entire bread component of a pizza. The cornicione is sort of like a continuous heel.

    I couldn’t find the word “cornicione” in any online English dictionaries.
