Valentine’s Day in Italy

In Italy, Valentine’s Day, also known as La Festa Degli Innamorati  is a holiday just for lovers and sweethearts. The roots of Italy’s Valentine’s Day dates back to the Roman Empire in which the gods and goddesses were celebrated on the February 14. In Christian times, the date was assigned as the Feast Day of early Christian Martyr St. Valentine.

In its modern iteration Valentine’s Day was actually imported from America. Unlike the American counterpart, the Italian version is strictly reserved for adults—children do not celebrate by exchanging cards or candy.

In Italy, sweethearts exchange small gifts or flowers. They have also taken to attaching locks to bridges, Lucchetti del Amore, to signify their love. Despite police banning the activity, just like love, this tradition still prevails. Another Italian Valentine’s Day favorite is traveling to Verona. The city was home to Romeo and Juliet and has become a huge Valentine’s Day destination. Capitalizing on its history of star-crossed lovers, the city holds a four-day festival all centered around Italian Valentine’s Day traditions.
