Verbs are doing words, and with Italian verbs, just like in English, they’re used to denote an action performed by someone or something. Anything you or anyone else does needs a verb so that you can do it. You can’t run without verbs, you can’t sing without verbs. Let’s face it, without verbs you just can’t do anything at all.If you, like us are passionate about Italian, here is a list of common Italian verbs which are the most used in conversation by Italians.

The Italian verbs have 21 tenses, divided in two classes: simple tenses (one word in the active form, two words in the passive form) or compound tenses (two words in the active form, three words in the passive form).
