Donna e fuoco, toccali poco

Donna e fuoco, toccali poco.
Literally: Women and fire, touch them rarely/never

I think this proverb is hilarious–it roughly translates as “stay away from women and fire”, as presumably you are apt to get burnt by both. 😉 It’s funny just how many more Italian proverbs follow this “Donna…” construction!
