Hello,

'All'incontrono ci andarono in quattro: carlo e juan da una parte, roberta e luca dall'altra.'

would this be 'when they met there were four of them, carlos and juan on one side, roberta and luca on the other.' ?

Thank you in advance!

    Four of them went to the meeting: Carlo and Juan on one side, Roberta and Luca on the other.

    It looks like they are two members of two opposite groups that meet somewhere.

    Hello,

    'All'incontrono ci andarono in quattro: carlo e juan da una parte, roberta e luca dall'altra.'
    I'd say:
    Four of them attended the meeting: carlo and juan on one side, roberta and luca on the other side.

    Of course, this has probably to be adapted according to the context (es. does "parte" here have a "geographic / movement" meaning, or does it mean that two parties were attending the meeting? Or, is it an informal meeting or a business meeting? And so forth).
