Our Tuscan neighbors, Lazio


Another weekend and it’s another game. This time the formidable Fiorentina is hosting Lazio for the 5th game of the season right here in sunny Tuscany. Lazio is the name of one of two teams representing Italy’s capital city.   Actually the region where the Eternal City is located is called Lazio, and the name  has a mythical derivation given by the ancients as the place where Jupiter “lay hid” from his father, a Roman god, seeking to kill him.  Well, here’s hoping that the Viola team manages to squash their opponents better than Saturn (Jupiter’s father) did.

Juptier would have hidden himself poorly if he were supporting Lazio and their colors – sky blue. Lazio’s symbol is a a shield in blue and white, topped with a rather regal looking eagle in gold / yellow.  In fact this color is very similar to our Fortunata Suede Leather Designer Handbag in color sky blue with yellow color accents.  Of course, he might not have hid very well – but with this suede bag, he would have been definitely very much in style!

Perhaps the Fiorentina would have been more prepared to hide themselves among the vineyards that grace our hilly region since their colors are purple, yellow and red.   Any one of these colors are starting to show up with the onslaught of Fall (the 23 of Sept) and the change of season.   We would have suggested our Fortunata Leather Tote, Designer Handbag in color sunshine yellow.  This bag in a delicious soft and supple patent leather with a light pebbly texture.

If he had been hiding with either one of these bags, he just might have escaped notice, since this is a FORTUNATA bag.  What’s in the name Fortunata? Fortunata means lucky in Italian. The “corno” or as it is known in English, the red hot chilli pepper, is supposed to ward off evil and assure the owner of lucky flair in all that they do. In any case let’s hope the good luck charm that comes with this bag will have us cheering for victory.  FORZA VIOLA.
