Che la differenza? "Mi sento come SE FOSSI caduta in una trappola" e "sento come DI ESSERE caduta in una trappola"

Hi Eva, as Giuseppe has said, your second sentence is not grammatically correct. The correct form should be "Sento di essere caduta in una trappola" (without "come"). That's because, the first sentence, "SENTO + COME + SE + FOSSI (SUBJUNCTIVE MOOD)", expresses a situation of analogy and hypotheses, more or less: "I'm feeling as i think i'd feel if I fell into a trap" (I'm feel like i'm trapped, but i'm not really trapped!). Indeed, the second sentence "SENTO + DI + ESSERE (INFINITIVE MOOD)" expresses a situation of certain perception, more or less: "I feel i'm trapped 'cause somehow i feel the trap around me". I'm sorry if my explication is a bit confused or if my english is uncorrect! :D I hope you will understand anyway!
