1. As an adverb (invariable form)

As ad adverb, proprio, means ‘really’

2.As a possessive adjective (changing its ending and becoming proprio, propria, proprie, propri, depending on the noun that it is referring to).

Proprio is used in the third person and is considered just like suo/sua/suoi/sue and loro.
