The most-used nouns: no. 006 CASA

I sostantivi più utilizzati nella lingua italiana
Numero 6 è…..

 casa (la)

“Casa” is the general term for any dwelling and can be translated as house or home depending on the context.  A lot of people live in apartments in Italy, and those too can be referred to as casa*.
You’ll often hear it in the following…
a casa
at home
casa mia
my house
sotto casa
on the street in front of one’s house
(especially if it’s an apartment building)


*If you want to refer specifically to the stand-alone structure that we would call a “house” you can use the term villa (which we also use in English) especially if it is surrounded by a bit of land.


See more examples, listen to songs, and practice your listening comprehension of casa in the newly updated digital magazine.

I normally don't reach out to the Italian learning sites I visit, but I have to say that your welcome email message was so nice, and your site is just amazing!...I am blown away, not only because of your content and the way you have organized it, but by your diagrams and "hidden answers" - I love the visual-ness of it (if that is a word), because I am a visual learner - your charts and bold fonts for clarity are wonderful.
