Va' a Bagg a sonà l'orghen*

* Go to Baggio to play the organ

Milanese dialect Milan, Italy

Expression USED On Occasion BY Everyone

Baggio was a small town close to Milan. The legend says that the parish was so poor that they couldn't even afford an organ for the church, and so had one painted on the wall. So, inviting someone to go to Baggio to play the organ, is like asking to go waste their time somewhere else.

"Non so cosa fare!" "Va' a Bagg a sonà l'orghen!"

"I don't know what to do!" "Go to Baggio to play the organ!"
