Today’s Parola del Giorno is the expression, fare centro, which means to be right on target or to hit the nail on the head. The expression can be used literally,

Marco: Cosa c’è che non va Giovanna? Con me puoi parlare.

Marco: Giovanna, what’s wrong with you? You can talk with me.

Giovanna: No, non è nulla, non ti preoccupare.

Giovanni: No, it’s nothing, don’t worry.

Marco: Ormai ti conosco troppo bene, hai litigato di nuovo col tuo ragazzo, ho fatto centro?

Marco: Now I know you too well, you argued again with your boyfriend, I hit the nail on the head?

Giovanna: Non posso nasconderti nulla, mi conosci troppo bene.

Giovanna: I can’t hide anything from you, you know me too well.
