t’s been a little while since the first of May, but the events that happened on the eve of that day this year, just like every year, is something worth talking about.
In Italy, the night before May first is called the “white night,” dubbed so because the lights stay on all night long. Free concerts were sprinkled throughout the city in the piazzas, you could buy a panino at 2, 3, 4 in the morning. Flash mobs were set up all during the night to the song “Party Rock Anthem” by LMFAO. I couldn’t even get close enough to see the performers, every high school student in Florence was in my way.
