1. As an adverb (invariable form)

As ad adverb, proprio, means ‘really’

Quello studente é proprio bravo!

Mi piace proprio il nuovo film di Sorrentino

And sometimes it means ‘just’, often combined with the adverbs of time (adesso, ora ) or a numeral adjective.

2.As a possessive adjective (changing its ending and becoming proprio, propria, proprie, propri, depending on the noun that it is referring to).

Proprio is used in the third person and is considered just like suo/sua/suoi/sue and loro.

Its usage is required when the sentence is impersonal, that is to say, that the subject of the sentence is not specified.

Ognuno deve pensare alla propria saluto e al proprio benessere
Bisogna pensare ai propri interessi

3. As an intensifier

When proprio comes together with other possessive adjectives it has an intensifying function and describing one’s ownership of something.

Vivo nella mia propria casa

E’ il suo proprio lavoro

4. As a negative intensifier meaning ‘at all’.

Non mi piace proprio!

Oggi non mi sento proprio bene!

Non voglio proprio vederlo!

5. In many colloquial expressions
