Impersonal form

The impersonal form expresses general actions, common to lots of people. All the verbs, both transitive and intransitive, have impersonal forms. The impersonal form with ‘si’ is more or less the Italian equivalent of the passive form in English. The same effect is achieved in Italian using the “impersonal si” and the third person singular or third person plural.
