#BuongiornodaMondello *

* #GoodMorningFromMondello

Italian Italy

Hashtag USED Very frequently BY Social media users

Mondello is a famous Sicilian beach that went viral lately after an interview about anti-covid measures on Italian beaches. Social media users now repeat that expression anytime they are at the seaside (not necessarily, though) and make hashtags, parodies, Instagram filters and much more out of it.

“#BuongiornodaMondello, oggi al mare! Ma non avete un po’ paura del covid?” “Non ce n’è coviddi, non ce n’è!”

“#GoodMorningFromMondello, so you are at the seaside today! But aren’t you a little scared of covid?” “There’s no coviddi here, not at all!”
