It corresponds to the English “to look good, to make a good impression”, but it literally means “to make a good figure” and it’s more of an aesthetic judgment (and it also says a lot about how Italians think and act). — Practice this lesson, and discover how you can make a “bella figura” and impress your Italian friends!

  1. I’ve enjoyed this one. My friend Piero from Italy used to say “che brutta figura” all the times. Italians really do use that expression a lot.
