Eufemia Griffo

The exact equivalent of the traditional seventh day of the seventh month in the Gregorian calendar varies from year to year, but it usually occurs in August. In many communities, however, tanabata celebrants steadfastly adhere to the auspicious pair of sevens date. Milanese poet Eufemia Griffo eyes Bellatrix, the third brightest star in the Orion constellation. The blue star forms the giant’s shoulder and its Latin name means a female warrior.
