For many years, many Catholic churches in Italy celebrate Ferragosto, or the feast day of the Assumption of Mary. Many churches in Italy believe that August 15 is the day that God assumed the Virgin Mary into Heaven at the end of her life.

Whatever your faith or beliefs a feast day in Italy that can bring together family and friends on such a large scale ( around 30 for us ) is surely a good thing!!

Put that together with around 8 courses served what’s not to love!!

Take the chance to celebrate whenever you have an excuse to, get your loved ones together, eat drink and be merry!! ( its not just for Christmas 😂like a puppy! )
