magnifico soffertissimo

"An Italian TV commentator declared that watching the tense match had caused great suffering: soffertissimo! At the ancient Circus Maximus, more than 150,000 people who watched the game on giant screens exploded with joy at the victory. "I don't believe it. It's a fairytale, it's just great to win after suffering so much. It's magnifico!" bayed 29-year-old Chiara."(Explosion of Joy in Rome)
