The History of Valentine’s Day

Some say that Valentine's Day originated in the Roman Empire as a holiday to celebrate the Queen of Roman gods and goddesses. The Romans also considered the queen named Juno to be the goddess Queen of Women and Marriage.

Another idea is that St. Valentine, who was a priest, defied the Roman emperor's orders. He banned marriage between lovers during wartime, and Valentine secretly continued marrying them. Once it was discovered, Valentine was put to death on February 14th, and later named a saint by Pope Gelasius.

Valentine’s Day Celebrations In Italy

Much like in the United States, lovers exchange chocolates and flowers and plan romantic dinners. There is a renowned chocolate maker, Perugina, who celebrates this day by making a special edition of Baci chocolate candies. They normally have a traditional hazelnut center, but during Valentine's day, they are filled with cherries and a liquid center. They are wrapped in red foil with a love note inside, and always a favorite.

Florence and Venice are usually considered the most romantic places in Italy. Verona runs a close third, though, because that is where Romeo and Juliet fell in love and eventually died in Shakespeare's famous play. Verona has a four-day celebration of events designated  "Verona in love." There will be a giant heart painted in the center of the city, as well as heart shaped lanterns, and free concerts.
