Pronounced: flihr, noun
Notes: I thought this was flee-uhr, one who flees, but… nope
The word morbidezza means “an extreme softness, smoothness, or delicacy, especially in words of art, sculpture, music, etc.
The word comes (as you may think) from Italian morbidezza (softness, smoothness), which comes from morbido (soft, smooth). It came into Italian from Latin, and how the meaning shifted is weird: in Latin, morbidus means ‘diseased’.
The word showed up in the early 1600s.
