August Playlist

Hi! I'm Simon, an intern at Shewanders from Italy. When I think about August I think about Ferragosto, an Italian holiday on August 15th. It is the perfect day to spend with the family or with friends. Ferragosto has roots in an Italian tradition from 18 BC when August (Rome's emperor) choose it as a national holiday. It was to celebrate and give thanks for the season's harvest, which is why the Italian name is Ferragosto (from Feriae=holiday and August=emperor and month name).On Ferragosto you don't need think about work, just BBQ and beer. So you can invite all of your friends and family to eat, drink and play in the sun. The BBQ typically start at 10 in the morning in a park or in your garden; if you are well organized you can party all day, and into the night. But remember, before start the Ferragosto party you need a good playlist.

Happy Ferragosto! - Simon
