The Fermi Science Tool Cicerone consists of the following sections:
Cicerone means 'a person who conducts sightseers; guide', and was apparently first applied to learned antiquarians who would show people around the ancient monuments of Italy.
The word is taken from the name of Cicero (full name, Marcus Tullius Cicero; sometimes he is called "Tully"), the Roman orator and statesman. The reference is that the guide is thought of as having the eloquence or learning of Cicero...
The word cicerone is taken from Italian, which in turn borrows from Latin; the -n- comes from Ciceron-, the Latin stem of Cicero. It is first found in English in the early eighteenth century.
