quando il fico pende

Cervidimo a settembre quanno l'ua è fatta e lu ficu penne.

Ci rivediamo a settembre quando l'uva è matura e il fico pende.

Quite a poetical proverb from Le Marche where we'll be going on a class trip in July. Pretty self-explanitory. Grammar-wise we see a reflexive verb used for reciprocal action - ci rivediamo (we'll see each other again). So to convey "each other" in Italian, you put a verb in the noi, voi or loro form depending on who's doing the reciprocal action, and put ci, vi or si in front accordingly. Noi ci vediamo (we see each other), voi vi vedete (you see each other), loro si vedono (they see each other). C4N!
