di nascosto da

In preparation for our upcoming language guide on prepositions (everyone who donated $5 or more will get a free copy to download), the next seven days will feature some useful prepositional phrases!

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the prepositional phrase di nascosto da, which means behind someone’s back.

See the expression used below:

I genitori di Marco sono molto arrabbiati con lui perché è andato al concerto di nascosto da loro, nonostante glielo avessero proibito. Quando torna sarà in punizione per un mese.

Marco’s parents are very angry with him because he went to the concert behind their back, although they had forbade him. When he returns, he will be grounded for a month.
