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”)
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…
(See also “I miss maggio”)
