In Italy, cento is commonly used to refer to the number 100. It is often used in counting and measuring things such as money, time, and distance. For example, if you want to say that you have 100 euros, you would say 'ho cento euro'.

Cento can also be used in a figurative sense to mean a large amount or quantity of something. For instance, if someone says 'ho cento cose da fare' it means they have a lot of things to do. In this context, cento is not necessarily referring to the exact number 100, but rather a significant amount.

It is important to note that cento is always written as one word and never separated into 'cen' and 'to'. This is because it is considered a single unit of measurement or quantity.
