Italians hate il weekend

Gli Italiani non si piacciono le parole inglese. Basta!

Why say ‘le weekend’ when ‘la fine settimana’ expresses the exact same thing?
Amico mio, that question is a difficult one. But after getting so many (mostly food-related) words from Italian, it’s only fair that we right this linguistic trade deficit. Besides I find it humourous to hear an Italian sprinkle heavily-accented English words into conversations. As a bonus, it also makes Italian easier for me to understand.
