I am trying to understand the difference between the following colors: "blu" "azzurro" "celeste"
Can you please tell me the following:
Is "blu" a dark blue?
Is azzurro a light blue?
Is "celeste" a synonym of "azzurro" and therefore also a light blue?
in Italian the color "blu" aka “turchino” is just a dark blue / deep blue, while “celeste” is a light blue/pale blue, and “azzurro” is a sky blue, i.e. an intermediate color between the “celeste” and the” turchino” / “blu”.
As you can see, "celeste" is not a synonym of "azzurro" as “azzurro” is not so light as “celeste”.
In short, if we wanted to make a ranking of these colors from the most intense to the least intense color, we should write:
1-blu /turchino = dark blue / deep blue
2-azzurro= sky blue as an an intermediate colour between “celeste” and ” turchino” / “blu”.
3-celeste = light blue/pale blue
Hope this is helpful to you.
All the best,
