Ciao Forum, I'm supposed to write a fake interview with two authors of the Romanticismo (Manzoni and Leopardi) discussing their work.
How do I say 'Welcome gentlemen'? I've also read that Leopardi was a conte - should I point that out?
Benvenuti signori / illustri...???
How would they address each other?
Caro / Egregio ?

Grazie in anticipo:)

    Hello,
    Benvenuti signori is fine.
    Addressing each other you can use:
    Egregio signor conte/Signor conte (if the person is a conte)
    Egregio signor
    Illustrissimo signor
    Carissimo
    They work all fine.
    I hope il helps.
    Ciao
    :)

    I think that it mostly depends on the contest; you could say: "Illustrissimi signori, benvenuti" (I wouldn't point out that Leopardi was a conte while Manzoni was not); "Esimi amici, benvenuti" (less formal but still "ceremonious"); "Dotti amici, benvenuti" (dotto: very learned).
