The word Allora in Italian serves in place of a number of English equivalents depending on its context, but is best represented by the words 'so', 'and 'then', or 'well then'. Allora is an adverb that has similar sister words in other Romance languages (for example the French alors) but it has no direct equivalent in English.

The etymology of allora can be traced to the combination of the Latin words ad, illam, and horam, meaning roughly 'at that hour'.

An example of the word allora in use is: Allora* sono tue qulle matite colorate?* meaning 'And so those colored pencils are yours?'
