Saint Valentine is the patron of the city of Terni, Umbria. He was born here at the end of the second century and is buried on a hill outside the city walls where today you will find the Basilica of St. Valentine.
The name Valentine comes from the latin 'valere' which means 'feel good' and the Saint was famous among his contemporaries its healing powers through faith.
They used to celebrate rites in honor of their gods Fauno e Luperco on the 15th of February to auspicate prosperity and fertility during the year to come.
The town of Terni still celebrates its patron with a calendar of events called 'Eventi Valentiniani' which include music, art, exhibitions and more.
This recipe is very easy and quick. So quick that it is also known as 'midnight spaghetti' as friends often decide to make it in the early hours having turned in late after a evening out. It is also quite popular with singles when there is nothing else left in the Italian fridge!
spaghetti, olive oil, gloves of garlic, dried red chilli, parsley

The first thing you notice about the territory of Ogliastra in eastern Sardinia is the name. It may derive from the olive trees that which feature across the territory, or perhaps after the monolithic red porphyry rock of Pedra Longa pictured (Agugliastra) located along the Baunei coastline in front of the small port of Arbatax.
What is for sure is that Ogliastra is commonly referred to as 'the amphitheater'. The territory is effectively hemmed in by three mountainous massifs positioned in such a way as to present an impressive 180° backdrop to the coastline of Tyrrhenian Sea below.
Specifically, the territory passes from the high basin of the Flumendosa river and Supramonte Mountains, the Gennargentu Massif and the southern Monte Arbu and Monte Ferru di Jerzu.
