    ever so = very

    (a) He was drunk
    (b) He was so drunk
    (c) He was ever so drunk
    (d) He was ever so slightly drunk

    So,

    (a) Era sbronzo:tick:
    (b) Era cosi sbronzo:tick:
    (c) Era molto sbronzo:tick:
    (d) Era molto leggermente sbronzo?:confused:
    L'ultima potrebbe essere una cosa del genere:

    A: Mario era completamente sbronzo!
    B: Ma no, dai... era solo leggermente sbronzo...
    A: Ah, sì??? Beh allora... era molto "leggermente sbronzo"!!!

    If you stress on molto you can give an ironic shade to that one...
    Is that the meaning?
