Why is nello used instead of nel?
Masculine words beginning with Z, with S compounds and some special groups of consonants need LO instead of IL as article... Some examples:
Therefore, you have here "nello zoo".
Then why not lo scimmia indtad of la scimmia?
Is it because scimmia is a feminine noun? I think that's right but apologies if not
Duo just told me exactly this. "Lo scimmia" was accepted but with a note that it's feminine so it should be "la scimmia".
I not sure but I think from comments I read lo in used in words that begin with s or z ......???@-@$$
Please give us a pull down keyboard with the accented vowels.
If you're using an Android phone long press the letter you wish to use & all of its accecented & various forms will appear. Even lesser used variations like these æ, å, ë, î, œ, ø & ü will be shown.

"nel giardino zoologico" should also be accepted.
È troppo ricercato! Zoo è più facile!
What is the difference between Nel and Nello?
but i thought you use "lo" when the next word started with a "z" or "s+consonant"???
I'm also confused, I thought it would be "Lo scimmia è nello zoo"?
¿Por qué no vale monello?... Cuando parece lo más apropiado y está en las definiciones de aquí...
when i read all this post below... i am still confused and still do not understand fully when and where to use NEL and NELLO... is there a native Italian that can explain the difference?
Why does nello come before è
Nello o nella.
che ne dite di libro: la scimmia è nella biglia
"Il scimmio" also works depending if we are talking about a male or female monkey.
