learn Italian and learn what to say when …

Posted by Monica Corrias on January 11, 2009



What to say in Italian when a friend loses her/his job?



We usually say “quando si chiude una porta si apre un portone” = “When one door closes, one gate opens” or, like in English,


quando si chiude una porta se ne apre un’altra” = “When one door closes, another opens”!



But you could also traslate your English expression “every crisis is an opportunity” into “ogni crisi porta delle opportunità“!
