Second blog about the function of Italian prepositions. Today we’ll talk about prepositions of place. Premium podcast.
Italian prepositions do not follow a precise set of rules. In the first blog of this series, we went though the prepositions of time, le preposizioni di tempo. Today we’ll have a good look at the same prepositions from a different angle and see how they relate to space.
DI – A – DA – IN – CON – SU – PER – TRA/FRA
Let’s see simple prepositions, one by one, with some examples. Of course they can combine with articles and form the preposizioni aticolate (e.g. Vado (a + il =) al mare) We are not going to see the so called “preposizioni improprie” or adverbs of space (such as dentro, fuori, sopra, sotto… etc.). They deserve a separate article.
That’s pretty much it. Please solve the quiz. Ciao!
