Summer, vacation, le vacanze, "feriae augusti"...dove vai?!

Summer vacation is just reaching its crescendo in California. 
In Italy people eagerly save, plan and await the August 15, Ferragosto holiday.  If anyone has been in Rome from August 15 onward, you would know that the streets are empty because of the mass exodus from the città eterna.  Here are some vocab words (and a hilarious video) significant to this time of the year in Italy. Ferragosto

Ferragosto,    15 agosto,    giorno festivo,    chiuso per le ferie,    l'esodo di ferragosto

There's a big beach culture in Italy and why not? Il tempo libero should be big on everyone's calendar at least once or twice a year.

la spiaggia,  la sabbia,  le sedia a sdraio,  il mare,   l'onda,  l'ombrellone,  il costume da bagno,  la cabina,  l'albergo,  prendere il sole,  il lungo mare

giocchi al mare:   il secchiello,  il pallone,  la paletta

Don't forget to bring the following:
la crema protettiva,  la crema abbronzante, gli occhiali da sole, un cappello di paglia...because it's essential to return to work:

Vi auguro di fare una buona vacanza!

  1. The rising adoption of additive and subtractive CNC machines is one of the|is among the|is probably certainly one of the} developments evolving within the machine software trade. Thus, to maintain up with the same pattern, manufacturers are developing hybrid equipment. For instance, in 2019, DMG MORI launched LASERTEC one hundred twenty five 3D, a hybrid manufacturing system at Formnext 2019. LASERTEC precision machining one hundred twenty five is a 5-axis laser deposition welding system targeted on repairing, maintaining, and producing massive workpieces up to as} 2,000 kg. Moreover, the manufacturers are at present facing gross sales challenges throughout the sectors, similar to automotive, construction, aerospace and protection, power, and others, owing to the downfall of those industries.
