Hi, Giulio. It’s used to emphasize a “yes” that contradicts a previous “no” (stated or implied):
A: What do you like to eat?
B: I like liver.
A: No way! You can’t like liver!
B: I *do* like liver.
In other languages, including Italian, you would probably use the word for “yes”:
Il fegato si mi piace.
