  5. "He turns toward her."

"He turns toward her."

Translation:Lui si gira verso di lei.

April 11, 2013



Can anyone tell me why "gira" is preceded by "si"? And why "di" is necessary if "verso" means "towards"? This is the first time I've come across it, and I don't understand.


girare + object = to turn something. "girarsi" = to turn (around) I turn = (io) mi giro. There are some prepositions which can be acompanied by "di" like "verso di", "senza di"
