Yes many dialects, but a true Italian can tell when proper Italian is spoken. I have a habit of speaking Calabrese with my daughter, wife and so on. Only to have my wife correct me almost on a daily basis. She is from the North and speaks more proper than me from the South.
For the record I was born way up North in Milan but speak Calabrese since my parents where from Calabria.

|Desmo_Demon||I ran across a guy recently who was from Tuscany, and I ran a few words at him to learn the proper way to pronounce them. The most interesting one that I asked was for that of my Paso. He said that most of Italy would pronounce it as "Pah-so", but he said that in Tuscany, he'd pronounce it as "Pah-zo". He said that Italy is very much like the USA with its different dialects.|

Sily silly silly.
Say it how you want - every Italian bike enthusiast will know what you mean, and will love you for the kindred spirit you have with them.
Especially if you say it with a glass of the finest italian red.

I tried searching the online dictionaries and most replied with "word not found" or a link to Wiki, which doesn't give the pronunciation.
I should have come to the best source first, namely here.
