in fretta e furia

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the expression in fretta e furia, which means in a great hurry or in a mad rush.

See the expression used below:

Oggi avrei tanto voluto parlare con Carla della riunione di domani ma si è fermata in ufficio solo per 3 minuti e poi è uscita in fretta e furia: doveva portare i figli in piscina ed era in ritardo.

Today I would have wanted to talk with Carla about tomorrow’s meeting, but she stopped at the office for only 3 minutes and then left in a mad rush: she had to bring her children to the pool, and she was late.
