  1. This is nice, Jane and Maximo… You really won’t find these expressions in books! What’s the literal translation of the verb imboscare? Is it related to the meaning of the noun bosco? 

  2.  Tammy, “esserci dentro” is idiomatic, and it literally translates as “to be inside of it” – “ci” translates as “of it”.

    LuisR, the literal translation of the verb “imboscare” is “to hide”. — We’re not sure that the meaning of the word “bosco” (woods) has anything to do with the meaning of the verb imboscare (to hide) — you were maybe referring to the idea of “hiding in the woods”?

  3.  imboscare e’ riferito molto spesso a coppie, ad esempio ragazzo e ragazza, si imboscano, cioe’ vanno da qualche parte, qualche posto appartato per avere rapporti.. non c’entra niente il bosco. oddio, ci si puo’ anche andare a imboscare in un bosco ma sarebbe solo un caso, il verbo imboscare in se non ha a che fare col bosco. puo’ anche voler dire nascondere riferito a oggetti ma con questo significato non e’ praticamente mai usato. sono italiano
