During all my travels in Italy, I have never been there mid November and so this was new to me. We saw a lot of young people in elegant nice dresses and some had a green wreath on their head. Obviously celebrations were going on. Claudio, one of my teachers, told me that these were the celebrations going on after finishing university – Laurea. And the wreaths are what the newly graduates get, together with flowers and other gifts. The wreath is said to symbolise wisdom. A cute custom I think.
