The passato remoto The passato remoto, like the passato prossimo, expresses completed past actions. The passato remoto usually refers to events of the distant past that do not have a continuing effect in the present. Passato prossimo Mia madre è nata nel 1939. My mother was born in 1939. Ho scoperto il jazz solo recentemente. I discovered jazz only recently. Passato remoto Il re nacque nel 1546. The king was born in 1546. Chi scoprì l’America?

lẹggere (irregular forms in orange)The passato remoto Many verbs are irregular in the passato remoto. Most of them, however, are irregular only in the first person singular (io), and third person singular and plural (lui/lei, loro) forms. Because of this pattern, they can be referred to as verbs. Once you know the first person singular form of these verbs, you can easily derive all the other forms. The verbs are regular in the tu, noi, and voi forms. For example: lẹggere (irregular forms in orange) 1 lessi 2 leggesti 3 lesse 1 leggemmo 2 leggeste 3 lẹssero © and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.

The passato remoto The passato remoto is used in narrations with the imperfetto just as the passato prossimo is used. The passato remoto relates the completed events and moves the action forward; the imperfetto is used for descriptions or to express habitual or ongoing actions. © and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.
