Today’s Parola del Giorno is the verb sbarcare, which can mean to disembark or to land. You will see this verb a lot in the news these last few months with the influx of migrants making their way to the Italian shores and to Europe. See the verb used below:

In questi mesi, migliaia di migranti, in fuga da guerra e povertà, sono sbarcati sulle coste italiane ma non tutti, purtroppo, sono sopravvissuti al viaggio. È un dovere di tutti i governi europei aiutare queste persone.

In the last few months, thousands of migrants, escaping from war and poverty, have landed on the Italian shores but not all of them have survived the trip. It is duty of all of Europe’s governments to help these people.
