It's an italian tradition, see Saint Valentine Day Tradition; the commercial speculation is another story...

Ciao, Valerio

    Italian? Couldn't find a proof for that on the page you mentioned. Instead i found:

    > But the fame which San Valentine all over the world is due to the legend which originated in the anglo-saxon countries

    So not necessarily America, but also (e.g.) England. But to my knowledge Italy is not anglo-saxon ;-)

      What you say is true but doesn't contraddict his biography :) I was talking about history, you were talking about legends; you will find the whole story in the italian version of that page.

      Ciao, Valerio

      I didn't say it's not an italian history. But the tradition was spread by anglo-saxon people. So it's their merit of making world-wide known. I'm not interested in the history, I just blame the commercial factor anglo-saxon gave to it.
