Celebrating International Women's Day


The 8th of May marks International Women’s Day (known as la Festa della Donna in Italy), a global day dedicated to celebrating the achievements of women all over the world.

So how do the Italians celebrate la Festa della Donna?

The Mimosa is the unofficial symbol of International Women’s Day in Italy, traditionally given by men to all the women in the family – their wives, mothers, nonnas, sisters and daughters. Nowadays, it has become popular for women to give each other bouquets of Mimosas; a sign of solidarity and respect.
