    What about in the negative form? If one were to say, “I do not need to do that,” how would it be correctly stated? To say, “non devo farlo” would signify that “I must not do it,” correct? As in, I am forbidden to do it, rather than “I don’t have the need to do it,” or, “it is not required.”

      Ciao Chris,

      In Italian must/need/have to, they all translate into the verb “dovere”.
      I understand in English there are different shades of meanings in using must or need, but it is not the case in la Bella Lingua.

      Happy to help
