Anno nuovo, vita nuova

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the expression Anno nuovo, vita nuova, which means Time to turn over a new leaf.

According to some sites, it is a common expression in Italy, but I have to admit that I have never heard it. Of course, that doesn’t mean much since I have never been in Italy at this time of year. That being said, the start of a new year is often a time when there is a desire to change the tone and direction of one’s life!

See the expression used below:

Il primo gennaio è una data importante per molte persone. Tanti dicono “anno nuovo, vita nuova,” promettendo di cambiare la direzione delle proprie vite.

The first of January is an important date for many people. So many are saying “Time to turn over a new leaf,” promising to change the direction of their lives.
