The Day of The Fools

In Italy, as well as in the rest of the world, April 1st is traditionally a day of jokes, silliness, and pranks of any kind.

The traditional Italian “Pesce d’Aprile” (April Fools’ in English) consists of someone attaching a paper cutout of a small fish to the rear shoulders of a friend or a family member with tape or glue.

As we’re getting closer to April 1st, we’ve decided to dedicate this Culture Shot to some of the best April Fools’ pranks ever, with one condition: all pranks we’ve chosen are related in some ways to Italy and Italians.

On the grammar section, something you’ll find very useful… a comprehensive review of the super important, must-know “Italian present perfect”.
