Holidays, holidays, the "holiday" as our grandparents used to say, explode in their need to be with the economic boom of the 1950s. Don't be outdone by friends or neighbors or relatives ... the race for new clothes, the most comfortable home or hotel, the search for money to be able to better enjoy a break from your everyday life. How much time to prepare and how much indecision, and this for all the more or less wealthy classes. It is extraordinary how Goldoni is so close to us in this thought. In fact, even today, little has changed, the needs to do the best "vacation" are the same. Fashions and means change but we don't, we don't change! Today we play our race with selfie and instagram shots, yesterday with postcards and two centuries ago with intrigue and gossip ... So Goldoni tells us, in his elegant prose, updated in this version only in some places to adapt it to a reading closer to us, in a glimpse of the 50s with the amusing comparison between the next anxious vacationers.
