    The Italian irregular verb stare has three usages and meanings:

    1. as a standalone verb, it means "to stay" in a precise location*;
    2. accompanied by an adjective, it expresses a physical or mental status;
    3. accompanied by a verb (especially in the gerund mood), it means "to be in process of doing something".

    enlightened*In this case the verb essere can be used with the same meaning as "to stay" but it has a very colloquial and informal connotation.
    ​Examples: Dove sei? Sono davanti al Colosseo (Where are you? I'm in front of the Colosseum)
    Where are you? Sto davanti al Colosseo (Where are you? I'm in front of the Colosseum)
