Today I would like to tell about Ferragosto in Italy ❤️ Celebrated on August 15, Ferragosto may well be considered the height of the Italian summer; many Italians still take their summer vacation around this time, with the cities emptying and the beaches filling up.
Ferragosto, which coincides with the Catholic feast of the Assumption of Mary, is a holiday that goes back to Roman emperor Augustus’ times. Several festivals took place during the month of August to celebrate the harvest; in 18 BC, Augustus introduced the 'Feriae Augusti' to connect them all and provide a longer period of rest after the harvest, a time of intense agricultural labor.
During the ‘Augustali’ celebrations, horse races were organized across the Roman Empire; such ancient traditions remain almost unchanged today, just think of Siena’s Palio dell'Assunta, taking place on August 16.
The popular tradition of taking a trip at Ferragosto was introduced with the Fascist regime, which, in the second half of the 1920s, began organizing hundreds of trips through its recreational organizations, even setting up the "People's Trains of Ferragosto", made available at discounted prices. The initiative gave the chance to less affluent people to visit Italian cities or spend time at seaside and mountain resorts. The offer was limited to 13, 14 and 15 August.
The tradition has continued to this day and, among beach games, water balloons, bonfires and dancing, Ferragosto has become a true celebration of summer. A key moment of the day is the traditional Ferragosto lunch, usually a barbecue or picnic with family and friends.
🤩 Давайте мечтать и визуализировать.
✈️ Смысл игры будет в том, где вам нужно будет написать:
📌 Где многоточия, берете ставите число и месяц вашего дня рождения, и от первой буквы своего имени, пишите название страны/острова/либо города.
❗️Ниже приведу пример:
Мое день рождения 8 марта, а первая буква имени, начинается на Б:
«Я поеду 8 марта в Бельгию»
❓А теперь Ваша очередь ⁉️
