The creation of St. Valentine’s day
Valentine’s day is annually celebrated on February 14th. It was instituted to celebrate Saint Valentine. This holiday was established two centuries after St Valentine died as a martyr around 270 A.C. His remains are on the Terni’s Basilica (Terni is a city located on the Umbria region in the center Italy) where you can read ” San Valentino patrono dell’amore” (“Saint Valentine patron of love”). And for this it is lover’s day. On this day the lovers exchange gifts. But especially the man send flowers or give chocolates to his woman and invite her to a nice restaurant for a romantic dinner.
During history there have been many people for whom the art of seduction was a science, with special importance at the table and food. For example Casanova relied on oyster and Napoleon trusted on the property of the truffle.
il Grifone restaurant offers a special menù for the St. Valentine’s day.
