Ferragosto: the 15th August, is the feast of  the Assumption, is a National Holiday in Italy. Cities  become ghost towns, as families and groups of friends flock to the coast, the mountains and lakes, and many factories and stores are closed.  
 
 
Weather: August is  very hot and humid and  the 15th of this month , called ”Ferragosto ”,is usually considered the ottest day.
 
Month Sign of earth dominated by Virgo (24/08 to 23/09). The tuberose, symbol of pleasure, is its  flower. In the gardens the strawberry-beds are renewed, we have to graft celery, leeks, cabbages, pears, apples, plums and some varieties of  grape ripen. The garden smells of tuberose, jasmine and roses. The phenomenon of falling stars catches up the apex around 10th, the night of St. Lawrence. It’s a month very hot, some days are suffocating, but it is also the month of unexpected storms, winds and rains that preannounce autumn.
 
Proverbs
August’s sun makes a  good must
Rain in august, honey and must.
