Rome, August 14 - As many as 20% fewer Italians will be celebrating the 'Ferragosto' Assumption holiday by eating out, a long-standing tradition for many holidaying families, according to a survey by national consumers' observatory Onf released Wednesday by consumer groups Federconsumatori and Adusbef. "The result is perfectly in line with a crisis which has hitg tourism and all of our country", the two groups said in a statement, noting that Italians eating out had already decreased by 25% in 2012.
