#304 I miss 1 maggio

Primo Maggio (May 1st)

Festa dei lavoratori, ‘workers day’

A national holiday in Italy. We celebrate work by taking a vacation. Very Italian uh?

One of the best ponti di primavera (see “I miss ponti” https://misshome.wordpress.com/2014/04/26/298-i-miss-ponti/ )

Normally people have a lunch or a grigliata (‘barbecue’) in the countryside,

many people attend the Concerto del Primo Maggio in Rome

Elio e le storie tese dedicated a satyrical song to the event…
