"Ferragosto" at the Waltershof

Ferragosto is a public holiday celebrated on 15 August in all of Italy.
It originates from "Feriae Augusti, the rest of emperor Augustus, who made the 1st of August a day of rest after the weeks of hard work of the agricultural sector. It became a custom for the workers to wish their employers "buon ferragosto". This became law during the Renaissance and in all the papal state.
As the festivity was created for political gains, the Catholic Church decided to move the festivity to the 15th of August which is the Assumption of Mary allowing them to impose also on this festivity. This festivity was also used by fascist Mussolini to give the lower classes the possibility to visit cultural cities or go to the seaside.

Also at the Waltershof we celebrated the day of "Ferragosto"...
With live music and a dessert buffet we enjoyed togheter this special evening! :-)
