  • direct object pronouns come after the conjugated verb
    • la porti per pranzo - you take him for lunch
  • when there’s an infinitive verb + a conjugated verb, the d.o. pronouns can go in front of the conjugated verb or after the infinitive (note: the infinitive loses the ‘e’ at the end if you add the pronoun after it)
    • loro mi vogliono ascoltare - they want to hear me
    • loro vogliono ascoltarmi - they want to hear me
