Perché si dice “Menare il can per l’aia” ?

“Menare il can per l’aia” è una espressione colloquiale della lingua italiana. Chi mena il can per l’aia continua a parlare di un argomento senza mai arrivare al dunque, oppure cerca di cambiare discorso per evitare un argomento sgradito. Si tratta di un’espressione di origine abbastanza antica, come dimostra l’uso di due termini ormai scomparsi nell’italiano contemporaneo: menare nel senso di condurre e l’aia, il cortile interno delle fattorie, L’espressione è comunque utilizzata ancora oggi con una certa frequenza. Il senso figurato è chiaro: compiere azioni che risultino inutili. L’origine della locuzione risale a quando la battitura del grano veniva effettuata apponendo il grano nell’aia e, così posto, lo si faceva calpestare conducendo sul medesimo gli animali pesanti della fattoria. “Menare” ovvero “condurre” il cane nell’aia non è pertanto un’operazione che produca l’effetto desiderato.
