In Italian, lui is the third-person singular masculine pronoun. It is commonly used in everyday conversation and writing to refer to a male person or animal. For example, 'Lui è un uomo molto gentile' means 'He is a very kind man'.

Lui can also be used as the subject of a sentence, such as 'Lui mangia la pizza' which means 'He eats pizza'. In this case, it is equivalent to the English pronoun 'he'.

It's important to note that lui is not interchangeable with the Italian pronoun egli, which is considered more formal and less common in modern Italian. Lui is also not used to refer to inanimate objects or concepts, for which the neutral pronoun esso would be used instead.
