My son has been wondering around Rome and has found quite a few disgusting things to touch. Is there a good translation of the English phrase "Yucky!", as in "that's gross, don't touch that"?

1 Answer 1


"Schifo!" means "Gross!". "Che schifo!" means "How gross!" I believe this is the closest translation in Italian.

  • I don't know the registry of yucky, maybe it can also be said as "bleeeee" (this is not a real word, it's an exclamation)

    @laika I believe "bleee" is more like "ewww" Feb 16, 2015 at 10:05
