I'm not sure they are ever not on vacation. Good luck, I hope you get a hold of someone.

Usually, in the past, they have not shipped [or transacted sales] in August.

Must be an oversite why that is not mentioned on website, or when ordering. :roll:

Maybe it should be mentioned but most of us have known that, for years :idea:

Italy [and probably] a couple other countries in Euroland, take August off.
It is not unusual for an empoyee in Europe to get 4-6 weeks vacation - his 1st year with the company.
I always had to work 5 years to get 3 weeks vacation :roll:
The U.S. is WAY behind on this but, few of us pay 50%+ income tax, like much of Euroland. And so far we do NOT have a "value added" tax - although the dems are thinking about it :shock:

Not only is Italy closed in the month of August, but the pace of life is very different. They move slower. Here in the US everything is done real fast, over night, instant, etc. It's a healthier life style, less stress: they enjoy life more that we do here in the US. Here people live to work. In Italy people work to live.

Not as much as you might think, unfortunately.
