Back to town - Il rientro

Although the Italian summer is a very long one, it ends at some point and the empty streets, you could dance on during the Ferragosto days, fill up again, daily life relocates to the cities - the chaos is back.
Everywhere you go, you hear people greeting each other with "Dove sei stata?" or "Ma quanto sei abbronzata!" (Where did you go?, You got a really nice tan!), catching up over a Cappuccino.

"Il Rientro" happens in the first two weeks of September, life shifts back from summer vaction time to daily life - with all obligations - but it wouldn´t be Italy if there weren´t a party: Every "bagno" (bar, sunchair rental, playground at the beach) celebrates an "end of the summer party", livemusic and dancing at the beach - the only way to accept the end of summer!
