Top 100 Italian Adjectives

The table below contains the 100 most common Italian adjectives.

Can you imagine a world without adjectives? It would be very boring and grey. All the nouns and the emotions would be the same!

Luckily, every language can count on adjectives. For Italians, this part of the speech is really important, because they like to go into details of their conversations!

An overview of Italian Adjectives

Adjectives are used to describe nouns. They have an attributive function when they are directly linked to the noun, or a predicative function when they need the verb essere (to be) to be linked to the noun.

  • Il cielo azzurro (the blue sky – attributive function);
  • Il cielo è azzurro (the sky is blue – predicative function).

Don’t forget that Italian adjectives must always follow the same gender and number of the noun they are linked to!
