Origin of mondo

From the title of the cult 1962 Italian documentary film Mondo cane, Italian for "A Dog's World", from mondo ("world") and cane (“dog"). The film featured bizarre scenes, leading to English use of mondo as an adverb meaning "very, extremely" in mock-Italian phrases like mondo bizarro.
