During Ferragosto it’s nice to relax and enjoy your favorite Magnum. Read below to find out more about the history of the holiday and how we took leisure to celebrate.
Ferragosto comes from Ancient Rome and then later on a Catholic tradition throughout Italy. The name Ferragosto comes from the phrase Latin Feriae Augusti (rest of Augustus), in honor of Octavian Augustus, the first Roman emperor, in which the month of August is named after. The holiday is a time of rest and celebration established by the emperor himself during which a number of parties celebrated the end of the agricultural labor.
Throughout the Empire, festivals and horse races took place, while draft animals were adorned with flowers. We adorned our Magnum.
We took leisure on our Magnum 44, which is its own emperor in and of itself. This luxurious yacht was the focal point of one of our recent photo shoots. The quality and elegance of the 44 gave an impeccable reason to partake in a day of leisure to be surrounded by the ones we love.
