Mi è sembrato ovvio che il piano aveva bisogno di qualche revisione.

It seemed obvious to me that the plan needed a few revisions.

I’m a bit surprised that it’s not avesse; it’s still a personal opinion.


Hi, I think because the need to revise the plan was *obvious, not up for discussion.

Yes, aveva does not sound right.

If the sentence started with “E’ ovvio che…” then the imperfect is acceptable.

But adding “sembrare” makes it hypothetical, so the subjunctive mood is needed.


Thank you @mike-lima. All help is appreciated.
