Daylight saving time - Ora legale

One hour less sleep at Easter. In fact, on the night of Easter, between Saturday 30th March and Sunday 31st March, daylight saving time returns. We will have to set the hands of our clocks forward one hour, from 2:00am to 3:00am.
Daylight saving time was introduced in Italy in 1916 and was regarded as an emergency measure to war, after 1920 it was reintroduced in 1940. The purpose of DST is to save energy on lighting power level.


Dormiremo un’ora in meno a Pasqua. Infatti proprio nella notte di Pasqua, tra sabato 30 marzo e domenica 31 marzo, torna l'ora legale. Dovremo posizionare le lancette dei nostri orologi un’ora avanti, dalle 2.00 alle 3.00 di notte.
L'ora legale fu introdotta in Italia nel 1916 ed era considerata una misura d'emergenza di guerra; dopo il 1920 fu reintrodotta nel 1940. Lo scopo dell'ora legale è quello di risparmiare a livello energetico sull'illuminazione elettrica.
