☀️Ferragosto☀️, the Italian name for August 15th holoday, comes from the Latin Feriae Augusti (the festivals of the Emperor Augustus) which were introduced back in 18 BC 😲, probably to celebrate a battle victory, and were celebrated alongside other ancient Roman summer festivals.

These festivities were linked to the longer Augustali period – intended to be a period of rest after months of hard labour🍹

So Ferragosto has more or less the same age as the concept of 🧊Frigidarium 🧊

ANYWAY…don’t forget social distancing! 😷
