Writing Numbers in Italian
When -tre is the last digit of a larger number, it takes an accent: ventitré, trentatré, quarantatré, and so on.

The numbers venti, trenta, and so on drop the final vowel before adding -uno or otto: ventuno, ventotto.

The masculine singular definite article is used with years.

Sono nato nel 1961. (I was born in 1961.)
La macchina di Dino è del 1998. (Dino's car is a 1998 model.)
Il 1916 (millenovecentosedici) è stato un anno molto buono. (Nineteen-sixteen was a very good year.)
