"la parete" vs. "il muro"
If anybody is wondering what is the difference between "la parete" and "il muro" :
- They are used interchangeably most of the time.
- In short "la parete" would be a wall in a closed space (internal wall), while "il muro" can refer to a wall built anywhere (il Muro di Berlino).
- "la parete" is used in biology, while "muro" isn't. (the cell walls = le pareti cellulari)
