Today’s Parola del Giorno is the noun, la cartuccia, which means cartridge (like you would put in a printer, for example).  See the noun used below in its context:

Stavo per stampare un documento per l’università e mi sono reso conto che non c’era più inchiostro nelle cartucce della stampante, sono dovuto andare al negozio a comprarle.

I was about to print a document for university, and I realized that there wasn’t anymore ink in the printer cartridges, so I had to go to the store and buy them.
