l’ombrellone

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the noun l’ombrellone, which means beach umbrella. These are the large umbrellas that you see on Italy’s beaches. It is important to take an umbrella with you to the beach so that you can shelter under it to get away from the sun for a bit. See the noun used below:

Per fortuna ci siamo potuti riparare sotto l’ombrellone in spiaggia. Senza quell’ombra ci saremmo presi un’ustione dolorosissima!

Luckily we were able to take shelter under the large umbrella at the beach. Without that shade we would have gotten painfully burned!
