Personal Pronouns: Introduction to the Combined Forms

In Italian, when a verb has both a direct and an indirect object pronoun, it has a combined pronoun form (these are sometimes known as pronomi doppi). An example of a sentence which uses both a direct and an indirect object in English would be: She sells it to her. In this case it is the direct object pronoun, and to her is the indirect object.

In Italian, these double pronouns have specific rules for their use together. Indirect object pronouns always precede the direct object, and the forms of the indirect object pronouns change slightly. Following is a table which shows how direct and indirect object pronouns combine together.
