Today’s Parola del Giorno is the verb azzerare, which means to reset something, like a clock or a stopwatch.

See the verb used below:

Due giorni fa è mancata la corrente e la caffettiera non ha fatto il caffè di mattina. Controllando, ho visto che il timer lampeggiava e ho dovuto azzerarlo. Adesso il caffè è pronto e posso avere la mia dose di caffeina prima di uscire di casa di mattina.

Two days ago the power went out, and the coffee maker did not make the coffee in the morning. Checking, I saw that the timer was flashing, and I had to reset it. Now the coffee is ready, and I can have my dose of caffeine before heading out in the morning.
