Valentine’s Day in Italy

Italy is often celebrated for its strong sense of romance, and this sense comes out all the more strongly during the Valentine’s Day celebration. Similar to our own celebrations, this is a time for Italian lovers to dine out and exchange gifts, as well as a big time for popping the big question. Traditionally, it was believed that the first man seen by an unmarried girl on Valentine’s Day would represent the man they would marry within the year; young maidens used to wake up early on the day to people-watch by their windows for this very purpose.
