This riddle does not make sense; Peppino only tells Tito what the current day is, which Tito already knows.

@Loz Peppino is telling Tito the day he bought the hat relative to the current day.

well as I see it. if yesterday was tomorrow and today would be Tuesday then tomorrow would have had to been Monday for yesterday to be Monday and today to be Tuesday but with all that said it still doesn’t tell us which day he bought his hat, he could have bought it 2 weeks ago.
