Metà is a commonly used word in the Italian language, and it is often used to describe something that has been divided into two equal parts. For example, if you were to cut an apple in half, you could say that you have 'tagliato la mela a metà', which means 'cut the apple in half'.

In addition to its literal meaning of 'half', metà can also be used figuratively to mean 'middle' or 'midpoint'. For instance, if you were talking about a book and wanted to refer to the middle section, you could say 'la metà del libro', which means 'the middle of the book'.

It's worth noting that metà is a gendered noun, so its form will change depending on whether the object being described is masculine or feminine. For masculine nouns, the correct form is 'metà'; for feminine nouns, the correct form is 'mezza'.
