Why the Roman Emperor Augustus Is to Blame for Delayed Tile Delivery
On August 15, Italy celebrates Ferragosto, the holiday established by Octavian Augustus in 18 BC and named after the emperor (from the Latin Feriae Augusti). Since then, this is the main period of vacations for the Italians, the time when the majority of companies and production facilities close for holidays. Therefore the lead time calculated on our website is 2-3 weeks longer (in the average) than usual. This is a force majeure circumstance. Starting from September, the tiles will be shipped again within the standard delivery times.
