Around the globe, St Valentine’s Day shares different customs and even different days of celebration. But in Italy, on February 14, there is nothing like the ‘’Baci Perugina Chocolates’’ to set the mood for love.
From Sicily to Lombardy, women and men look forward to receiving ‘’Baci’’ (the Italian word for ‘’kisses’’) for the love note that comes with each silver-wrapped treat.
And if you happen to be lost for words on that day, whisper into your lover’s ear this little sweet poem to create the most romantic atmosphere:
Le rose sono rosse
Le viole sono blu
Lo zucchero e dolce
E cosi sei tu
