Hi, guys. I am trying to find an Italian equivalent to a Chinese proverb. Literally it means "He who was once bitten by a snake will have a fear of a noose/coiled rope (for drawing water from a well) for ten years". In China, "ten" is a very special number, considered to be important and auspicious. Here, however, it is used to emphasize "for a very LONG time" . In Japanese, a similar expression is "He who was once chased by a tiger will be frightened at the sight of a painting of a tiger". I believe we have some similar expressions in English, like "A burnt child dreads the fire" or "Once bitten twice shy". I am wondering if there is an Italian proverb or idiomatic expression with the same idea. Thank you.
