History: Giorno di San Valentino
History This Italian festival traces it’s roots back to San Valentino or St Valentine who came from the Umbrian town of Terni. The history of St. Valentine : it is rumored that he would give gifts to young admirers. Two such admirers fell in love after he gave them flowers and he was forever to be associated with overpriced flowers and corny hallmark cards. Other well known saints hailing from Umbria include St Francis of Assisi.
