No reviews, be the first!

January 17th is the feast day of Saint Anthony, the patron saint of animals, lost articles, the poor and many other people and things beside. Although born in Portugal, not Italy, the early 13th century monk died in Padua and his relics are a site of pilgrimage, housed in the Basilica of Saint Anthony of Padua.
