Sicchè

So; then. 

Example: ‘Sicchè alla fine siamo andati al teatro.’ (‘So, in the end we went to the theatre.’)

 

Midolla

The soft part of the bread. 

Example: ‘La midolla di codesto pane unnè bona: la si sbriciola tutta!’ (‘The soft part of this bread is no good: it’s all crumbling apart!’)

 

Un sono mica ripreso dalla piena!

Literally: I didn’t come into the city with today’s high tide [of the Arno]. Figuratively: I wasn’t born yesterday. 

Example: ‘O pallino e lo vedo che vu siete in combutta! Un sono mica ripreso dalla piena!’ (‘Buddy, you think I can’t tell that you two are in cahoots? I wasn’t born yesterday you know!’)
