Valentine's Day is a party that the Catholic Church instituted to counteract the pagan festivities that took place in the Roman Empire. It is celebrated on February 14 as a commemoration of the good works done by Saint Valentine of Rome that are related to the universal concept of love and affection.
The story goes that Valentine was a brave priest who secretly married hundreds of soldiers with their partners despite the prohibition of Emperor Claudius II. Therefore he was beheaded but during the days he was waiting in prison for his execution he saw that the daughter of the prison judge was blind and worked the miracle so he could see. During his transfer to the public square for his execution, Valentine gave the young woman a piece of paper to read. She opened the paper and for the first time managed to see and the first thing she saw was a phrase that said "Your Valentine" as a way to say goodbye. Some historians say that Valentine fell in love with the girl, so it became the symbol of love.
Archaeologists have found a catacomb located on the Maresciallo Pilsudski street (the Pinciano neighborhood in Rome) dedicated to Valentine's Day.
