LearnItalianPod Learn Italian with LearnItalianPod.com – Our dear friend and longtime VIP subscriber Lisa from Chicago sent us a fantastic piece of news about an invention made in Italy which, if it works, is going to change forever one of the icon of the Italian food: la pizza! That’s the “pizza vending machine” – a machine that doesn’t just sell pizza, but is actually a mini pizzeria that kneads the dough, spreads the toppings and bakes a personal pizza in just three minutes as you watch through a little window!

So, let’s dedicate this Culture Shot to this incredible and revolutionary new piece of “Made in Italy”, and let’s learn and practice a few must-know Italian food names together with some common and useful Italian idiomatic expressions. Enjoy!

  1.  Nella lezione 38, supplementary vocabulary, non ho capito la differenzia tra “ce” e “ci”

  2. Blaise, qual’e’ la frase che non hai capito?

    As a general rule, pronominal particles ce/ci (to it) are treated like accusative pronouns for word-order purposes. Note that ci, the first person plural accusative, is easy to confuse with ci, the accusative particle, but they’re not the same.
