Can giorno della settimana be translated as weekday? Just curious :P

Not to be completely sure, but I think the direct translation of 'weekday' is 'giorno feriale'.

If not correct, please correct me.

Nobody talks like this in English. It might have been possible if there were like two Mondays, three Wednesdays, but only one Tuesday in a week. Usually just "a" or "an" are used. In Italian there are no separate words for "a/an" and "one', so in both cases they use "un/uno/un'/una".

Who doesn't talk like this in English? "Tuesday is one day of the week; Wednesday is another." Bingo!

If I were to say "one day" it is "un giorno." I would report it. If this happened to you on a Tuesday, then that is one day of the week I wouldn't want to be in your shoes. ;)
