7. I think that's how it's pronounced.

Not all Italian words are accented on the penultimate syllable. I confirmed the pronunciation on Wikipedia.

10. No. She pronounced it like you would pronounce Pocono

Not a big deal in the scheme of life of course, especially now. Just made her look dumb to me.

20. Hey, I'm a professor of Italian...it's not like andiamo...

There are exceptions to every general rule. The first syllable of Bergamo is stressed. But even this is a general rule.
