Did You Know?
The name “piano” is actually a shortened nickname from the Italian “gravicèmbalo col piano e forte”.
The grand piano was originally invented in 1698 by harpsichord maker Bartolomeo Cristofori. He called his invention “gravicèmbalo col piano e forte,” which means “harpsichord with loud and soft” in Italian.
That long phrase was shortened to “pianoforte” and then eventually just become “piano.”
