19.3.1 flexion of the ordinal numbers

The ordinal numbers stand for someone or something and can therefore be masculine, feminine, singular and plural.

singular
  Il primo che era andato. => The first who went away. (man)
  La prima che era andata. => The first who went away. (woman)
  plural
  I primi che erano andati. => The firsts who went away. (men)
  Le prime che erano andate. => The firsts who went away. (women)

The relevance of ordinal numbers in plural is restricted because they were not often needed and the higher they are the more seldom they are needed.

  I quinti facevano ciò che volevano. => The fifth did did what they wanted.
