avere il prosciutto sugli occhi

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the expression avere il prosciutto sugli occhi, which means to have the wool pulled over one’s eyes.

Prosciutto e la pizza 🙂

Use this expression when someone does not see or notice something obvious, as in our expression below:

Sveglia, scemo! Non capisci che Matteo ti sta imbrogliando? Cosa hai sugli occhi, il prosciutto?

Wake up, idiot! You don’t understand that Matteo is cheating you? What’s pulled over your eyes, the wool?
