This answer seems wrong. I just checked with a native Italian speaker, who said that my answer ("the middle finger") is correct. "The medium" (in the "average" sense) should be "la media".

Il medio has a too many different translations: average, the middle, the middle finger, medium, etc., depending on context.

do we mean "median" (one way of calculating an average) if so should it be acceptable. what are the technical words for mode, median etc?
