The things we say.....!
Posted on March 18 2017
How many times, as an Italian, we blurt out a saying that just comes out naturally to us because we have used those words our whole lives. As we got older, we realized the impact of these expressions and yes, most times the humor!
What was your favorite expression? Which ones did your nonna/nonno use? Which ones do you use today?
Our expressions are directly to the point, sometimes insulting, and incredibly clever. Some of the "sayings" differ from city to city and even from Italy to the US. But we all know and appreciate them. Too many communities have dropped the opportunity to learn Italian in our schools opting for other languages that are less frequently used.
I am so proud to have brought this opportunity to those of us who still hold on to some of those precious memories of our unique communication.
I hope you enjoy our website!
