Neapolitan | Italian Naples, Italy


Name USED On Occasion BY Almost Everyone

(a ricotta cheese maker) • In Neapolitan, an Italian dialect, we say “ricuttàro” referring to someone that takes advantage of other people/ a slacker. The origin of this term is linked to the fact that ricotta is obtained from the waste of milk processing, therefore it’s a product that is obtained without any effort.

“Non hai ancora sistemato la tua stanza? Si nu’ ricuttàro!”

“Haven't you tidied up your room yet? You’re a slacker!”
