Prepositions: Simple and Articulated


  1. The Prepositions
    1. The most frequently used prepositions in Italian are as follows:

      di --> of, from
      a --> to, at
      da --> from
      in --> in, to
      con --> with
      su --> on
      per --> for
      tra (fra) --> between, among

    2. Some of the above prepositions combine with definite articles when they precede them, making a special form of the preposition called a preposizione articolata (articulated preposition). Following is a table showing which prepositions combine with articles and how they do so.

      a al allo alla all’ ai agli alle
      da dal dallo dalla dall’ dai dagli dalle
      in nel nello nella nell’ nei negli nelle
      su sul sullo sulla sull’ sui sugli sulle
      con col coi

      NB: The preposition con only combines in two instances.
