What are some customs and traditions of Italy?

Some customs and traditions of Italy are catholism, olive oil, fascism, pasta, gold and fruit trees/ vines everywhere. Also a very traditional Christmas day. Also, building a ceppo ( a sort of a Italian Christmas tree also known as the tree of light) near Christmas time is a past time. Having a feast of seafood on Chritsmas eve also. For children on Christmas, they expect La Befana (instead of Santa!) to give them gifts.
