Italians like to socialise outside the home and often meet in bars, restaurants and pizzerias, but gatherings at home are also very much a part of Italian life when Italians gather as a family to celebrate special occasions or just to come together to enjoy a meal on Sunday.
The extended family still plays an important role in Italian life with many young families reliant on help from the grandparents to help with the children, especially when both parents are out at work all day.
You will often see large family gatherings at restaurants or on holiday together.
