Marzo marzo pazzerello, c’è il sole, prendi l’ombrello!
‘March, little crazy march, it’s sunny but take your umbrella’
The month of the rebirth of Nature after winter, the month of Spring
Takes its name from Mars, the Roman god of war
The month in which farmers prune vines…
(Francesco Del Cossa, fresco in Palazzo Schifanoia, Ferrara, part of the Allegory of March, below)
