Wherever you are in Bella Italia... Buon Ferragosto a tutti! 💙
FYI for my non Italiano friends this 'height of summer bbq' holiday has an interesting origin - "Ferragosto is a public holiday celebrated on 15 August in all of Italy. It originates from Feriae Augusti, the rest of emperor Augustus, who made the 1st of August a day of rest after the weeks of hard work of the agricultural sector. It became a custom for the workers to wish their employers "buon ferragosto" and they would get a monetary bonus for this reason. This became law during the Renaissance and in all the papal state. As the festivity was created for political gains, the Catholic Church decided to move the festivity to the 15th of August which is the Assumption of Mary allowing them to impose also on this festivity. This festivity was also used by fascist Mussolini to give the lower classes the possibility to visit cultural cities or go to the seaside for 1 to 3 days, from the 14th of August to the 16th, by creating "holiday trains" with extremely low cost tickets, created exactly for this holiday period. But the food and board was not included, this is why even today Italians associate packed lunches and barbecues with this day. By metonymy, it is also the summer vacation period around mid-August, which may be a long weekend (ponte di ferragosto) or most of August"
