ARIA- Word of the Week

Word of the week: ARIA  – In Summer, we like to spend as much time as we can all’aria aperta (in the open air). So we picked ARIA as  Word of the Week.

In music, an Aria is a long song accompanying a solo voice.  An Aria is usually in an opera. It is an Italian word of the 18th century meaning “ air” (i.e. tune)

If  you feel like vi manca l’aria, it means that you litteraly cant breathe or that a situation is unbearable . In any case, you need to change something !
