farsi un livido (su + una parte del corpo)

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the expression farsi un livido (su + una parte del corpo), which means to bruise oneself (on a part of one’s body). Literally, it means to make a bruise on a part of one’s body.

See the expression used below:

Manuela cambiava una lampadina in cucina quando è scivolata e ha sbattuto il gomito contro uno spigolo del tavolo. Purtroppo si è fatta un livido sul gomito e non riesce a muovere bene il braccio.

Manuela was changing a light bulb in the kitchen when she slipped and banged her elbow against corner of the table. Unfortunately, she bruised her elbow and cannot move her arm well.
