loro (to them) is mostly restricted to formal communication. In regular usage gli is used instead, which avoids the following irregularities of loro:

  • loro almost always follows the verb

  • loro generally follows the past participle
    Ho detto loro.I told them.
  • loro always follows other clitics
  • loro is never attached to the verb or other clitics
