    Fece finta di non vedere / siamo d'accordo (o siamo sulla stessa lunghezza d'onda) / for the last one I don't know an equivalent expression in my language (italian). Maybe there is a similar one: "gioco di mano, gioco da villano" which means if you beat someone you're rude (=if you "play with your hands", you're rude)

    “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” 🤗 That means one person can see a beauty in something/someone and another person may not see it. 🤔

    There is a Chinese idiom saying 睁一眼闭一眼 (with one eye opened, and one eye closed). That means one can tolerate things, and is pretending not to know. Something will not be investigated..

    🇮🇹🇮🇹 1) “Fece finta di non vedere” 2) “Siamo sulla stessa lunghezza d’onda” 3) Esiste “Occhio per occhio e il mondo diventa cieco”, che è una citazione di Ghandi, ma non l’ho mai sentita usare

    🇧🇷 Ela fechou os olhos para isso. Estamos de acordo. Olho por olho e o mundo acabará cego.

    @Alia 알리아 Merci a toi! tu est trop gentil Alia... Même ton Italien c'est pas mal du tout, Un jour j'aimairais bien faire un échange italien/anglais avec toi, mais on ce moment j'ai pas trop le temps malheureusement. Je vais te tenir au courant ! Passe une bonne journée :)

    @Damiano Merci tellement, j'aime l'Italie et les amis que j'y ai rencontrés, simples et chaleureux 😁. Ça rend l'apprentisage de la langue si sympa! De même, je manque malheureusement de disponibilité pour faire des échanges linguistiques mais je suis certaine que tu serais un bon partenaire. Chanceuse la personne qui pourra s'organiser avec toi lorsque tu seras disponible😃👍🏻!!

    @Alia 알리아 thank you! A small correction on the pronounciation of “vedere”, the accent goes on the second E, therefore it’s vedEre, not vEdere :)
