St. Patrick Is a Paesano
March 17 is the feast day of St. Patrick, known to Italians as San Patrizio. Although Patrizio’s celebration is overshadowed – in Italy at least – by that of San Giuseppe (St. Joseph) on March 19, Patrizio has his own ties to Italy. His parents were Romans.

St. Joseph’s Altar
One of the great traditions on St. Joseph’s Day is the beautifully decorated altars made to honor the Patron Saint of carpenters, fathers and Sicily to name a few. These altars, which have been around for centuries, are a labor of love by Sicilians who create them to give thanks for good fortune, fulfill a promise or just to share with those who are less fortunate.

Should You Change Your Last Name If You’re a Married Italian Woman?
I have covered love and marriage as a reporter for more than a decade now. People are always asking about whether, in this day and age, women should change their name after the wedding. It is among the top searched subjects related to being newlyweds on Google, in fact. Of course, the answer is more complicated than merely yes or no. Of course, it depends on who you are and what makes you most comfortable. Of course, your spouse might have an opinion, too. This is relevant to gay couples, too, who might be considering changing to one name or combining both their surnames to make one.

Italian Wedding Customs & Traditions
What makes Italian weddings so intriguing is that the customs and traditions vary from region to region as well as town to town. This will give you a great look at the traditions and customs that occur during the engagement, mass and reception and whether they are still carried on today.
