The Italian Bridge

Rome · Italy

Welcome to the Joomla! World Conference

The Joomla! World Conference (JWC) is an annual user conference aimed at users of the award winning Joomla! content management system. Joomla! powers over 3% of the entire world’s websites and is used by individuals, multi-national corporations, governments and charities to serve and manage their online presence in an efficient, flexible way.

Now in its sixth year, JWC is to be held in Europe for the first time and will bring together a community of likeminded Joomlers in Rome. A mix of keynotes, presentations, workshops and sessions will spread over three days in both English and Italian with simultaneous translation ensuring that the broadest content is accessible to all.

(HINT! - Click on the cards below to reveal the meaning.)

 

 

COME ER CACIO SUI MACCHERONI!

Literally:
"Cacio" is a cheese and "Maccheroni" a type of pasta, together they are the perfect match!

Meaning:
With a verb, the it means "at the right moment", on its own it means "a perfect match"

SEI ER MEJO!
SEI ER MEJO!

Literally:
You are the best.

Meaning:
It means indeed "you are the best" and so it can be used as a compliment to a person. But, Italians use it also in a sarcastic way. So pay attention!

STA IN CAMPANA!
STA IN CAMPANA!

Literally:
"it is in a bell"

Meaning:
based on the fact that in the past bells were a sign of alarm, it means be sharp. be ready or even take care.

Literally:
"we saw each other"
