    This is great!
    I’m learning Italian while standing in a queue 🙂

    Istituto italiano di cultura
    in Dublin
    posted a link to your article on Latin phrases used in Italian on Facebook which is how I got here 🙂

    I am planning to make a stool or foot rest for my sister-in-law. With padding and a pretty white fabric on top to have an inscription something like: Domenica: Giornata di Pasta, which means Sunday: Pasta Day. On your site I found the difference between “giorno” = generic day, and “giornata” = special day, or the usage when meaning characteristics of the day. I had never heard “giornata” before. Thank you!
