Act #14: Santa Maria in Trastevere

Narrator Opening

Welcome back, cari ascoltatori! I’m really thrilled to introduce this new installment of our show, which promises to be packed with fun!

Connor is finally in Italy. He landed in Rome a few days ago and got himself a room in the charming neighborhood of Trastevere. Looking out the window he sees a gorgeous piazza paved with cobblestones. His landlady is a friendly local woman named Lella. She’s a great story-teller and a wonderful cook. And her cat seems to have taken a liking to her new roommate. One would say Connor is all set. Right? Hmm, not quite so! I heard Lella and Connor are having a little misunderstanding… and… coffee is involved. Oh yes… guys, I’m not making this one up!

So, my friends, avete studiato gli argomenti grammaticali di oggi? Today Silvia will draw our attention to a group of verbs that display irregular past participles in the passato prossimo. These verbs, as we’ll see, do not follow the conjugation pattern we saw in the previous installment. Then we will learn how to conjugate reflexive verbs in the passato prossimo. And finally, icing on the cake, we’ll explore an expression that epitomizes a bold approach to problem-solving.
