Notti Di Ferragosto

Ferragosto is an Italian holiday celebrated on August 15. In present days, Ferragosto is mainly a short holiday where Italian people have short vacations and head to the beach. In our case it was for all night tango. After the main milonga at Portali we headed to Azzuro La Plaza and danced until well after sunrise with ths smoky top of Mount Etna on one side of us and the gorgeous warm sea on the other side. After which it ws time for an early morning dip and a late breakfast of Brioche and Sorbet before retiring for the day - when in Sicily do as the Sicilians do!
