Parola del giorno | Word of the day
Today's Parola del Giorno is the expression fare baldòria, which means to paint the town red or to have a good time.
La baldòria - for those who like to know where Italian words originate - is from the old French word baud or baudoire, which means “joyous.”
It usually refers to lots of revelry and merrymaking!
See the expression used below:
Ieri notte non ho dormito molto: gli inquilini del piano di sopra hanno fatto baldoria fino alle tre. Non lo sanno che la gente lavora durante la settimana?
Yesterday night I didn't sleep much: the tenants upstairs painted the town red until three in the morning. Don't they know that people work during the week?
I learned this a few months ago when Rootsie went viral with his TikTok video, "kinder fetta a letto" Anyone who wants to hear "Fare la baldoria" said by someone with true enthusiasm should listen to Rootsie's brief song: https://www.tiktok.com/@_rootsie_/video/7040051355574144262
