mimose-donne2International Women’s Day is this Saturday.   In Italy, Festa della Donna.  DONNA means woman. The plural is donne – women. If you want to celebrate Women’s Day the Italian way, give the women in your life a small bouquet of mimosa flowers.

To celebrate the 8th of March, International Women’s Day, women will be offered free entry to museums, villas, monuments, archeological sites, archives and libraries across Italy. This initiative seeks not only to increase  public interest towards art, but above all strives to honor the women who have contributed and continue to contribute to the world of art. Dozens of towns and cities throughout Italy will be celebrating Giorno Donna with special events.
