Almost but not quite, kwodree-foylee-oh. With an Italian accent rather than Aberdonian, obviously.

Perché?

More kwodree -fol-yo in Italian io tends not to be pronounced eeo rather yo

I agree. But the 'g' alters things a bit. More of a "foylee" (with a very short "ee") than a "fol". But it's a very subtle "oy" too.

"Klove-er-leeff" is much easier

Ok maybe not with an Aberdonian accent.

It's Kwodree-folyo ...

Kwod as in "Quad"
Ree as in "me"
Folyo... Start as you're about to say the word "fog" but change to "Leo" before you quite reach the "g".. so there is a "<g>" in the back of your throat.
...But don't say "yo" as in "Leo." It's "yo" as in "yoghurt".

Don't say any of it with a faux Italian accent..
