Ability to transform into human form and act as a spy for witches and black cat skulls are used by witches to prepare poison since then people began to consider black cats is a sign of Satan the pious European community at that time was always suspicious and considered black cats to

Be a part of voodoo related to the devil and so black cats became Outcast creatures anyone who had anything to do with them was punished or number c stay away from brooms if you are single and accidentally see someone ahead using a broom to sweep the yard

Run as far away as possible Italians believe that if a single person accidentally hits their feet with a broom they will live alone for the rest of their lives I don’t know where the real reason for this belief comes from in fact there is no evidence that being

Hit by a broom will affect someone’s single life rumors and Notions about this are often created from folk beliefs and word of mouth without any scientific basis or exact reason but like I said Italians are very superstitious and if you see unmarried young men in Italy running away from brooms don’t be too

Because it spoils the flavor of the food only Pizza is takeout in this country second all fruits must be peeled Italians do not eat the peels of apples Pierce peaches instead they will peel them and leave them in advance which is something most foreigners find unusual the explanation for this is that

Italians think that fruit peels contain pesticides even if washed they will remain so it is best to peel them off they also do not use eggs for breakfast popular breakfast in many Western countries include fried eggs bacon bread and butter however Italians like to eat sweet things in the morning like cereal

Cookies fruit and a SP another very important rule is to place the bread on the right side and in the right direction according to Italian beliefs bread is considered a symbol of life so if it is overturned or worse pierced by a knife it is considered a bad Omen if

You do this while dining at an Italian family congratulations you about to be kicked out number four do not feed pigeons if you are planning a trip to the floating city of Venice in Italy immediately write down the following note in your notebook that is even if pigeons

Surround your feet don’t feed them if you don’t want to be fed like many other major cities with many pigeons such such as New York and London the Italian city government of Venice has long been aware of the dangers that pigeons can pose to human health it is estimated that there are about

130,000 pigeons residing in the St Mark’s Square area about 40 times the number that International Studies have suggested about the ideal density per square kilometer the birds themselves are cute but they also pose a danger to human health ording to test results on birds each bird carries at least one one

Pathogen so medical experts have reason to be concerned not to mention the damage caused by bird dropping because when eating too much food pigeons will digest faster this bird’s droppings are acidic and can destroy artwork on historic buildings around the square the situation has become particularly serious as the number of tourists has

Increased estimated at 20 million per year causing the consumption of bird food and the amount of waste to increase as as well as the number of pigeons here increases and causes significant damage and pigeons like chickens seek foods containing calcium carbonate to form eggshells they wool they Peck at marble

Showed that almost 30 of Italians interviewed were certain that they had been subjected to Witchcraft and black magic at least once about 20 of respondents admitted that they had participated in at least one shot so don’t wonder too much why the new house has to go through such rituals to clean

Number two the contrast between Night and Day in Italy most people often stay indoors and gather enjoy meals after work and rarely go out restaurants in Italy are often empty at night because for Italians dinner at home is very important in addition the evenings here are often cold and wet so many people
