i saldi

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the plural noun i saldi, which means sales. In Italy, sales generally happen only twice a year: after Christmas in January and in the summer beginning the first few days of July.

This post from Italy Explained will give you the low down on sales!

See the noun used below:

Ti piace la mia maglietta? L’ho presa quest’estate quando c’erano i saldi: ho fatto un affare comprandola a metà prezzo!

Do you like my T-shirt? I got it this summer when the sales were on: I got a deal buying it at half price!
