The torrid temperatures of these days make us look at the fountains of Rome with different eyes. That water in perpetual motion gives refreshment even to pass by.
The idea of labelling the heat waves that invest Europe with names taken from mythology, such as the Infernal River Flegetonte, and Charon the venal ferryman of Hades, or from history as the Emperor incendiary Nero, even if it is useless, works. Always relevant to hell or with fire, the definitions are suggestive and we remember them.
In passively consuming this useless brand, then, we can still "refresh" the memory of our classical studies.
It is not an official nomenclature, as for hurricanes overseas, but only a bizarre marketing experiment by the Meteo.it. Of course the lazy summer journalism will Sguazza us.
