In this lesson, we learn the difference between three important Italian adverbs: “alla fine”, “finalmente”, and “infine”. Even though these words look and sound similar, they have different meanings and uses in Italian.

Two Main Takeaways

  • The adverb “alla fine” is used to indicate something that happened last in a series of events or actions, or to indicate the final outcome of an event.
  • The adverb “finalmente” is used to indicate something that is finally happening. The adverb “infine” is used to talk about the final step of a list of steps.
