Perché non va a casa?

Where is “you” implied in this sentence? Why isn’t is “vai”?

Ciao @mikerofone.

Ah, I read this as “why doesn’t *he go home”.

It could also be Formal with the third person of andare: “Sir, perché non va a casa?” (just a fun example) or Lei - formal you.

Whenever I’m confused about “va” and not “vai” I think “Ah, they’re using the formal”.

Happy to be corrected by @mike-lima :wink:

Your answer is correct: It can be read two (or three) ways: “Why isn’t he/she going home” or “Why aren’t you going home”, implying a formal “Lei”.
