What does “fare ponte” mean? – Italian expression

Posted by Monica on April 25, 2013

What does “fare il ponte” mean?  What is the “ponte del 25 aprile”?

I like “fare ponte” and you? Fare ponte, literally to make the bridge,Roma_ponte

is when we take an extra day off creating a long weekend 🙂

Usually we make a four day holiday by taking off the in between Monday or Friday.

For example today is April 25, the public holiday “Festa della Liberazione” (Liberation Day), so in addition to the national holidays,  since today  falls on Thursday, many people are taking Friday off to have a 4 day weekend.  The Public Italian schools too.

Io farò ponte, quindi tornerò a lavorare solo lunedì prossimo. Non così male, no?  😉
