Celebrating "la Festa dei Nonni"!

Introduced in Italy by law in 2005 to “honor the importance of the role of grandparents within the family and society in general”, la Festa dei Nonni (National Grandparents Day) is celebrated on October 2, the date when the Catholic Church honors guardian angels.

We join in celebrating nonni in Italy and around the world with this slideshow of modern and vintage images, showing nonni having fun or caring for their nipoti (grandchildren), something very common in Italy.

Viva i nonni!
