The Italian diet consists of a rich breakfast  with sugar but without grease, which would be too hard to digest,  and is meant to provide the right energy intake to start the day as good as possible.   Lunch is the main meal in a day, when the typical family eats ordinarily a complete meal - as first dish pasta, then either meat or fish. Dinner is mostly lighter. Anyway nowadays the routine has inverted the traditional habits: the family sits together only once a day. Italian food
Italy is the most famous and one of the greatest wine producer, claiming several valuable labels.  Although the Italians are particularly careful about their food, usually healthy and balanced, it is impossible for them to go without their famous desserts. Each region is also characterized by typical sweets.
ITALIAN TRADITIONS Among Italian traditions, Christmas is the most reresentative. The  Italians love the symbol of the “Crib”, the representation of Christ’s nativity, introduced by St Francis in 1223. Italy is attatched to Christmas because of its Catholic roots.  During Christmas time, all families gather and have a great dinner. Children wait for  presents: everybody feels very happy! Easter is the most important annual religious feast, celebrating Jesus’ Resurrection. The date of Easter varies between 22 March and 25 April. During Holy Week, in many Italian regions very particular rituals are held.  Holy Wednesday is the day when   the ancient ritual of the “Via Crucis” is re-enacted. There are 14 stations and hymns, prayers and meditations accompany the passion, death and resurrection of Christ. In many cities of the South the “Affrontata” takes place usually on Easter Sunday; it is a  re-enactment of the meeting between risen Christ and Mary, thanks to the intervention of St. John.
