    Hallo, At the top of thr page re ‘ne’ and ‘ci’ I read that ‘ci’ ‘often appears in combination with pensare’ And yet one of the first examples is ‘Che pensi di Maria? Che ne pensi?’ Then later I read ‘Pensi a Maria? Ci pensi’. The important difference seems to be between ‘pensare di and pensare a. It’s very tricky stuff. Ciao! Mike

      Ciao Mike,

      “Pensare di” and “pensare a” have different meaning and so you should opt for the correct pronoun CI/NE accordingly.

      Penso a Maria = Ci penso
      Cosa pensi di Maria = Cosa ne pensi?

      Happy to help

    This is a really coherent explanation that makes me think there is some sense to how Italian is structured. Brava!
