Can anyone tell me what the difference is between Barberia and Barbiere, and when it is appropriate to use them?
I am doing a sign for a Barber Shop who wants to use the Italian wording. The shop has a name of it's own, this word would be to let people know what kind of shop it is (example: A Cut Above - Barbershop).
From my understanding:
Barberia = Barber Shop
La Barberia = Barber Shop
Barbiere = Barber Shop OR Barber
Il Barbiere = The Barber
Which is the most commonly used in Italy?
