In effetti

In effetti is a very common expression in Italian. We mainly use it when we agree with someone or with something we just said.

In other words, we use it to emphasize a statement confirming something that has just been suggested either by us or by someone else.

In effetti is a synonym of infatti and effettivamente.

In English, we could translate it as:

  • Actually
  • Indeed
