La Festa Della Donna

I just receive an invitation to attend an Event in Roma. It was a party for La Festa Della Donna = Women’s Day. I love it! Magari io fossi li`. Are there any other countries that have Women’s Day? I don’t know of it in the USA unless it’s Mother’s Day. On March 8th, Italy celebrates Woman’s Day. According to Andrea Nicosia and Justin Demetri, “The symbol of the day is yellow mimosa and expression of female solidarity. It was said to have been started after World War II. ”

That is one of the many special things about Italy, everyone can feel special in Italy and the kindness to strangers is like no other place I’ve been in the world. At least these have been my experiences for the past 7 years. To all of the wonderful women: VI AUGURO BUONA FESTA DELLA DONNA
