Combattere o lottare contro i mulini a vento

Posted by Monica Corrias on July 7, 2008

mulino = mill

– Combattere con i mulini a vento = combattere contro nemici immaginari
– Literally: to fight against windmills / to tilt at windmills
– Gegen Windmühlen kämpfen

Chiedo scusa a Don Chisciotte, ma non so come sia in spagnolo.

Con “mulino” abbiamo anche:

-tirare/portare acqua al proprio mulino / fare qualcosa esclusivamente per il proprio vantaggio
-literally: to drow water to one’s own mill / to bring grist to one’s own mill
-wörtlich: bringen Wasser auf seine (jds.) Mühle / sich selbst Gewinn verschaffen
