The purpose of this study is to outline the lexical history of the adjective zaino, using examples of old and current use and a contrast with its insertion in the lexicography, in order to reflect particularly on the extension that its second meaning (‘dark color’) has at present. In this historical exploration we intend to reflect on the linguistic change, the amphibology and the phraseological possibilities that the adjective zaino offered, up to the current testimonies, which show an enlargement of the referents. Indeed, nowadays the adjective is also observed in descriptions of objects and parts of the human body and not only applied to horses and bulls, as in previous times.
