Piazza della Signoria, Florence; Italy

The Loggia dei Lanzi - Restoration on  Giambologna's The Rape of the Sabine Women

Serenata, The Serenade, Rome; Italy.

The serenade.  It is common for the man to serenade the woman before he proposes marriage to her.  He either performs the serenade himself or enlists the help of his musically-inclined friends.  Often he will ask her father for his daughter’s hand in marriage before proposing to her.

Paolo & Paola, our friends from Roma, took us to their friend's Serenade.  It was in a small town, about an hour from Rome.  While the Groom serenades his Wife-to-be, with classic Italian tunes, a friend takes up a single red rose to her.  When she throws the rose off the balcony to her love below, she has accepted his proposal.  Ahhh Love...
