Public & School Holidays in Lombardy - 2015

In Italy, a public holiday is called a giorno festivo, while a national holiday is a festa nazionale

  • Italian regions each celebrate different saints and festivals, and although it may not be a general holiday, businesses may close to take part in the celebrations
  • If a holiday falls on a Tuesday or a Thursday it is common for people to take the intervening day off in order to create a 'bridge' for an extra long weekend: fare il ponte
