Shocking new: An old Italian Wedding tradition is now becaming a crime!
Italian spouses, mostly in the south part of Italy, always carry a satin bag, called “la borsa” at the time of reception where the Guests put their envelope with some money in it.
This money gift will help the couple make some future arrangements, and usually donations are around €. 150,00/200,00 per person.
But now, as per a new Italian law, every Wedding Ceremony will be guarded by an Officer, in charge of checking these envelopes which can’t exceed €. 85,00 per person.
In case of bigger amount, a 15% commission to the Italian Revenue Agency will have to be donated.
…Can you believe it? It sounds crazy, but it’s true!
