1. The Artistic kiss 

One of the most famous romantic Italian painting is ‘Il Bacio’ by Francesco Hayez – 1859 –  at the Pinacoteca dell’Accademia di Brera. This painting represents the main features of Italian Romanticism and  represents the spirit of the Risorgimento.

 

2. Chocolate kiss

A must on Valentine’s dates, the Bacio Perugina is a small chocolate invented by Luisa Spagnoli in 1922 . At first it was called ‘cazzotto‘ (punch)  this name was not suitable to the product so it was changed with ‘bacio’ (kiss). Since its birth Bacio Perugina has a love message written in different languages between the chocolate and the silver wrapping.

3. Two kisses for greeting

In Italy the kiss is also form of greeting, especially among relatives and friends. Generally they greet them with two kisses. Not three as our French cousins. The single kiss is used when you see someone every day; the kiss is used between women or men and women, while between men the most common form of greeting is the handshake.

4. Mum’s kiss

La mamma è sempre la mamma‘ (mom is always mom) is one of the typical Italian expression to highlight the importance and uniqueness of the mother in Italy

The kiss of a mother will always make you feel better!

5. The pope’s hand and the kiss

The pope has on his left hand a ring called “the fisherman’s ring” (Anulus Piscatoris), which represents S.Peter dropping the fishing net from his boat. When people meet him they kiss that ring to show respect to him and to the institution of the church.
