Ciao a tutti e bentornati nel mio blog!
In today’s post we’ll talk about the verb “piovere”, which is impersonal.
You will hear many people, including myself, say “ha piovuto”, but is it really the correct thing to say?
Well… It’s not!
Since “piovere” is an impersonal verb (we only use it in the 3rd person singular), there is no agent to the action of raining. Therefore, it is wrong to use auxiliary verb avere.
For the reason explained above, it is necessary to use essere as auxiliary verb, “è piovuto”.
