201 → Duecentouno.

(two hundred and one)

423 → Quattrocentoventitré.

(four hundred twenty-three)

The word cento (hundred) is always singular.

785 caramelle → Settecentottantacinque caramelle.

Seven hundred eighty-five pieces of candy.

365 giorni → Trecentosessantacinque giorni.

Three hundred sixty-five days.

Note: when cento (hundred) is followed by ottanta (eighty), we drop the o at the end, but if it is followed by otto (eight), we keep the o.

108 = centootto

(one hundred eight)

389 = trecentottantanove
