Flirting Italians have a reputation for being flirty, so these phrases could well come in handy if you're navigating the Italian dating scene. There are a few different terms for flirting: the reflexive verb 'provarci' (roughly 'to try it on with'), the phrasal verb 'fare il filo a' or 'corteggiare' (literally 'to court') are more formal alternatives, or you can use the Anglicism 'flirtare', or 'civettare', though the latter is generally restricted to women. The noun 'una civetta', which means 'owl', is used to talk about flirty women (in English you might say 'vixen'), while for men you could say 'un donnaiolo' for a heterosexual man (it translates more or less as 'womanizer') or 'un cascamorto', which comes from the term 'cascare morto' (to fall down dead), suggesting dramatic swooning. You can also use the verbal phrase 'fare il cascamorto' to refer to a man who is flirting, usually in an over the top way, with someone. Italy's elaborate piazzas provide a suitably … [Read more...] about How to talk about love, sex, and dating in Italian

TRIVIAL Pursuit players have been left scratching their heads after all questions in the Harry Potter edition were printed in Italian. They had all been given the popular general knowledge board game as a Christmas present or bought for someone else. But after the gifts were opened for a bit of traditional festive fun, a bit of the boy wizard’s magic or at least a dictionary was needed when the 600 answering questions. The blunder led to some irate Trivial Pursuit players seeking answers on Twitter from Tesco and other retailers. One user, Amber Brown, wrote: “Hey guys, hope you're having a good Christmas! Kind of a weird question, we bought the Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit game from your Formby store as a Christmas present, and opening it today we found that all the questions are in Italian? Is this a common thing?” Another disappointed Harry Potter fan Sarah Burfitt said: “Was looking forward to Harry Potter Trivial Pursuit...

Rebecca Tan, The Washington Post Published 11:43 am PDT, Monday, July 30, 2018 When a 6.2-magnitude earthquake hit the central Italian town of Amatrice two years ago, Fabiano Ettore and his German shepherd, Kaos, were among the first to join in the rescue efforts. Kaos, who was just over a year old at the time, worked for days with other dogs to find survivors of the quake, which killed 241 people and destroyed most of the town, The New York Times reported. Months after the Amatrice earthquake in August 2016, Kaos also helped with rescue efforts after an earthquake in the town of Norcia and took part in other missing-person searches, the Associated Press reported. On Saturday, Kaos, hailed as a "hero dog" by Italians, was found dead. Ettore, who found the dog's body in the garden of their home in Sant'Eusanio Forconese, said in a Facebook post that Kaos has been poisoned. "I have no words," he wrote.
