How do i know when to use 'dell'' as opposed to 'di'?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Knueller1

Im confused also. For me "della" as well as "nella, alla,..." is only used, when it comes to special objecects. E.g "dalla casa mia" vs. "da casa". Can anybody help? Grazie

I guess, dell' probably is "di lo" if you seperate it. So it is di but "anno" starts with a vowel, thus you need to use "lo" with results in dell'

Does that make sense or am I wrong?

i guess "di" is OF, whereas "del" is OF THE (di+il = del)
