Errore numero sei - Superlativi assoluti

It’s a very beautiful dress

È un bellissimo vestito

Bellissimo/buonissimo and all words ending in “issimo” are absolute superlatives and cannot be preceded by adverbs such as molto.

Therefore it would be wrong to say:

molto bellissimo

An adjective already expressing a quality to its maximum level cannot be qualified further!
