(by DuoItalian)

The conditional perfect (condizionale passato) is formed by combining the present conditional of the auxiliary verb avere or essere with the past participle of the acting verb.

  • Avremmo potuto ballare tutta la notte. (We could have danced all night.)
  • Avreste dovuto invitarla. (You should have invited her.)
  • Saremmo andati volentieri alla Roma. (We would gladly have gone to Rome.)
  • Sophia sarebbe andata volentieri al ristorante. (Sophia would have been happy to go to the restaurant.)

The table below contains the conditional present form of the auxiliary verbs avere and essere:

io avrei sarei
tu avresti saresti
lui, lei avrebbe sarebbe
noi avremmo saremmo
voi avreste sareste
loro avrebbero sarebbero

The conditional perfect follows the same rules in regard to avere and essere as the present, past, and future perfect.
