Parola del giorno | Word of the day
Today's Parola del giorno is the noun lo sfollagente, which means baton.
The word literally means "people disperser" (from the verb sfollare, which means to disperse, and the noun la gente, which means people).
It is sometimes used by police to break up riots and fights. In many countries, such as the UK, the police do not carry weapons except for batons.
