Happy Italian Father’s Day!
Italy is deeply rooted in its Catholic tradition. Thus, a lot of feasts and festivals recall a religious event and this is also the case for the celebration of Italian dads. The #fathersday is celebrated on the 19th of March which is Saint Joseph’s day, the father of Jesus Christ. Saint Joseph is considered by the Catholic tradition as the symbol of a pious and perfect father who fulfills his assigned role within the family, but also the protector of woodworkers, poor people and orphans.
