Listen to us saying the Arancia, Arance pronunciation correctly. It's the perfect way to say Arancia, Arance.
Quick Overview of Arancia, Arance
'Arancia', arance *(f) is Italian for 'orange, oranges. The plural is 'arance'. Be careful of the ending - 'aranciO' (the masculine form of the word) means 'orange tree'. The Spanish word for 'orange' is 'naranja', and the French word is 'orange'.
Although these words look very different at first sight, when you listen to them spoken and pay attention to the phonetic elements, you will see that they are variations of the same word. Arancia becomes naranja simply because people in Italy pronounced the original word in a very different way to how people in Spain said it (think of Scottish English compared to English in other parts of the UK)- over time it changed, then the spelling changed and 'arancia' became 'naranja', or vice versa. Pronunciation does change words over time. If this aspect interests you , I suggest using this link for Online Etymology which provides some very interesting detail
