The Relative Superlative

The relative superlative (il superlativo relative) is a simple grammatical concept in both English and Italian. In English, the relative superlative is expressed by using the most or the least with an adjective or noun or by attaching -est to an adjective. For example, He is the cutest guy here or It was the most fun I’ve ever had.

In Italian, il superlativo relative is formed using the following formula:

definite article (il, la, i, le) + (noun) + più/meno + adjective + di + the comparative term(s)

One thing to note about using this formula is that the noun can move around a bit, or not be used at all. Take a look at the following examples:
