Former cabinet

“Cesso” It is a word that we all know and use not only to define vulgarly bathroom, but also as a synonym for something (or someone) that we find unpleasant.

Well, have you ever wondered where to derive this term?

Do you know its origin?

In fact at the base there is nothing negative.

The word “bog”, simply, It comes from the Latin retirement, or “secluded”, and he was initially reference to the location of toilets, that in antiquity there were in places as much as possible isolated.

So a name absolutely neutral backgrounds, but over time has expanded and partially changed its meaning, become substantially derogatory.
