The Conditional Mood in Subordinate Clauses

Lately, our lessons have focused on the various uses of the Italian conditional mood, both past and present. In our last lesson, we went over how and when one uses the conditional in independent clauses; now, to wrap it all up, we will investigate the conditions that necessitate the conditional in the subordinate clause of a two-clause sentence.
