Italian passato prossimo In Italian, when we talk about the past, we use the passato prossimo which is the equivalent of the past simple. Have a look at these two examples and try to find a difference: Ieri ho visto un film bellissimo. Yesterday I watched a beautiful film. Ieri sono andata al cinema. Yesterday…

Very easy but several mistakes in the English trabslation. For instance in English "you" can refer to one person or several persons depending on whom you are addressing.
Also the simple past of the verb run in English is ran. Maria ran
etc.

Per quanto ne so, ci sono due eccezioni, camminare e viaggiare. Questi due verbi formano passato prossimo con avere. Vero?

Ciao @ervin-rakonczai!

Si, hai ragione. I verbi camminare e viaggiare formano il Passato Prossimo con l'ausiliare avere

Scusa, ma il titolo "Passato Remoto: examples" (nella sezione grammaticale) no apparare corretto per colpa di tutti gli esampi phrasi utilizzo il Passato Prossima, no,....... come:

"I miei genitori sono appena arrivati."
"Michele e' corso a vedere chi era."
eccetera...

Magari il titolo dovrebbe essere "Passato prossimo""Passato Prossimo".
(Is 'dovreebe essere' correct for 'should be' ? ... grazie)

Ciao @donald-bell!

Puoi rispiegare perché pensi che il titolo "Passato Prossimo: examples" nella Grammar note non è corretto? Non ho capito bene cosa intendi comunicare.

To clarify, I am attaching a screen capture of the grammar section in question which is titled Passato Remoto. But, all the example sentences beneath that title are Passato Prossimo, consistent with what the grammar section is dealing with. So it would seem that the title "Passato Remoto" should be replaced by "Passato Prossimo".

Great.  Glad I was correct. As they say: "Even a broken clock is correct, twice a day."
