Italian Style/Usage Dictionary? (No English)

DictionaryFilter: Looking for a good Italian-Italian style/usage dictionary, ideally just like the Duden #3 Stilwoerterbuch for German (Italian examples, simple words, covers questions of usage more than definitions)

The Duden Stilwoerterbuch shows the following for a given word:
1. Several 1-3 word synonyms/definitions for a given word
2. Examples of the word in multiple sentences or phrases. (For a noun, it would have all sorts of typical adjectives modifying that noun, etc. Every varied use and nuance of a verb is shown with example sentences)
3. What sort of cases, prepositions, etc need to be surrounding that word for it to work correctly.
Because the definitions of each word are 1-3 words long, it makes it very easy for a foreigner to understand a German word in German, and make vocab flashcards with German on both sides, etc.
Is there something like this for Italian?
