    Hi there,

    I'm wanting to know if there's some similar way in Italian to say 'just to name a few', for example: 'my hobbies are skiing, reading and cooking, just to name a few'.

    Hope you can help!

    L'espressione più usata è "solo per citarne alcuni (alcune)", che corrisponde perfettamente.

    E' possibile usare la formula anche inversamente?

    e.g. It provides many benefits. To name a few it helps to....

    E' questa formula accettabile anche in contesto formale? Oppure vi sono alternative?

    Grazie ;)

    It's fine, Parergon, but you must use a comma after few. You can also say, "Namely,..." and "For example,/As examples,...."
