Kirsty’s weird Italian – Learn Italian in Italy
Every language comes with it’s own bizarre expressions that seem a little bit out there to non-native speakers. The Italian language is no exception.
Here’s my pick of some of the weird and wonderful and slightly mad Italian phrases…
Weird and wonderful Italian phrases
- “Una cenetta con i fiocchi” – (lit. a meal with bows on) a meal with all the trimmings
- “Mi fa venire il latte alle ginocchia” – (lit. makes milk go to my knees) watching paint dry
- “Una buona forchetta” – (lit. a good fork) someone who likes eating/eats a lot
- “Melosa” – (adj.) cheesy, as in a film with a cheesy ending
