Articulated prepositions

In Italian there are nine prepositions: di, a, da, in, con, su, per, tra, fra. Most of them can combine with the article, i.e. a + il = al. The rule is very simple! Learn the articulated prepositions in Italian.

Articulated prepositions in Italian

Il gatto è sul tavolo.

Often when you speak Italian you’ll need to use both a preposition and an article. In this case you should merge the two of them creating a so-called articulated preposition (preposizione articolata). For example:

Il gatto è sul tavolo.The cat is on the table.
Vado al supermercato.I go to the supermarket

To create an articulated preposition you only have to combine the preposition with an article. This is not particularly difficult since both the prepositions and the articles remain very recognizable and the endings for the same article are always the same. Look at the tables:

Preposition CON + articles

Also con can be combined with the article, but it’s not a must. Con can only be combined with il and i. In the other cases they remain separated, e.g. con la mia amica.
