piccolissimi versus piccolissimo

In lesson 1.9 on "Likes & Dislikes," in the discussion of superlatives, the example is: piccolo --> piccolissimi. Is the plural. Is piccolo used with both plural and singular masculine nouns, or would piccoli be used with plural masculine nouns?

I think piccolissimi is a typo. piccolo becomes piccolissimo piccoli becomes piccolissimi

Yes, that's what I thought also. But of course, I don't know what I don't know, so I wanted to check with the forum. Grazie, John.

ciao a tutti, there is no typo. Here the explanation: "piccolo" (masculine, singular) = > piccolissimo "piccoli" (masculine, plural) = > piccolissimi. Enjoy ! Ciao
