    Sort by:

    discendere e scendere hanno lo stesso significato (they have the same mean)
    ascendere e salire sono gli opposti di scendere e discendere (they are opposite of scendere and discendere)
    pratically ascendere and salire mean go up discendere and scendere mean go down I hope to be useful for you XD!

    discendere = scendere
    ascendere = salire
    Only in the meaning.
    The context of usage is quite different!

    /Ascendere/ is used in a religious or mythological contexts,
    while /discendere/ is used in religious or mythological contexts,
    and also in expressions like:
    -- l'aereo e` disceso a mille metri di quota.

    In simple contexts salire, and scendere are far better choices!

    scendere ad esempio: che io sto scendendo le scale.
    salire --> Io sto salendo sull'autobus, sulle scale e con l'ascensore.
    Ascendere --> esempio L'angelo è sceso sulla terra.
    Discendere --> L'aereo sta discendendo a terra.
