CURIOSITÀ

Do you know why almost all weekdays end with ? Because is a synonym of giorno (even if it’s a bit outdated), so means day 

The names of the weekdays have their origin in the Latin language:

Lunedìil giorno della Luna dies LunaeDay of the moon
Martedìil giorno di Marte dies MartisDay of Mars
Mercoledìil giorno di Mercurio dies MercuriiDay of Mercury
Giovedìil giorno di Giove dies IovisDay of Jupiter
Venerdìil giorno di Venere dies VenerisDay of Venus

The original reference to Saturno (dies Saturni) and Sole (dies Solis) of the last two days of the week has been replaced by religious references: il sabato, from the Hebrew shabbath, is il giorno del riposo the day of rest, e la domenica, dies Domini, is il giorno del Signore the Day of the Lord.
