the days of the week are    
  il lunedì monday

We see that Sunday is feminine in Italian (la domenica), the other days are masculine. The days of the week can be part of a date specification. The day of the week is put in front of the date specification. If a preposition is needed it is put in front of the whole expression. If the preposition is combined with an article the rules are to apply we already know.
