La Festa di San Silvestro

The wall calendar is in Venetian. It's the sort of calendar which shows all the months and weeks and days in one large poster layout. It cycles through the year, column by column, month by month, week by week, day by day: luni, marti, mercore, zioba, venere, sabo, domenega.

But this week in this year, there is no Sunday. There will not be a Sunday until next year, until 2006. Today, the Feast of St. Silvester, New Year's Eve - it's the last day of the year. As the wall calendar says by today's sabo, "xe l'ultimo".
