A bassoon, in Italian, with variants in several other languages including German (Fagott) and Armenian (fakod in Western Armenian and fagot in Eastern Armenian). The name comes from the word "faggot", meaning a bundle of wooden sticks, which the instrument resembles. Has nothing to do with being gay.
Io suono il fagotto (I play the bassoon).
