Ferragosto - Italy is on holiday!
Every year most Italians observe Assumption Day, also known as Ferragosto, on August 15. This national holiday celebrates the Catholic belief that God took the body of Jesus’ mother Mary into heaven at her death. Ferragosto also celebrates the middle of summer in Italy and is unique because it marks the beginning of Italy’s famous summer holiday period when most kids are on school holidays and families, business owners and frankly, most Italians, pack their bags and cars and head to the Italian coast.
We wish all Italians a fantastic summer holiday!
With sunny greetings from Italy and „alla prossima volta“!
