could anyone tell me which formula I should use for the integer part of a cell to be shown in another cell, and for the value of this cell to be changed, since, for example, 5,77 would become equal to 5?

The answer could be:
a >>write following formula in(e.g.)cellD3" =IF(c3<1;0;INT(c3))"

When I tried to give an answer to Gilles' basic question I proposed "my" formula based on the reality that I have never experienced negative voting. The very interesting (theoretical) discussion this caused shows that there may be several correct solutions.

I can imagine that Gilles (and me too) is curious to know what is the best answer to his problem. Even if I did (I admit) some "overthinking" I cannot see that my answer is wrong.

No, your answer was not wrong, but it was unnecessarily complicated - like adding zero to something: not wrong but pointless and confusing. For non-negative C3, "=IF(C3<1;0;INT(C3))" is identical to and no better than "=INT(C3)".

So, what is the best way for Gilles to continue?

Using INT(), as was suggested in the very first reply (before any of my comments).
