Who pays for dates in italy?

who pays for dates in Italian culture? Like when a couple goes out to eat, get coffee, go to the movies or concerts etc.? Does the guy pay or the girl? Or do couples go dutch/take turns paying? I'm talking about Italians from Italy btw, not Italian-Americans.


From what I've read and seen, they are more old style traditional with the guy paying. I found an article about Italian dating etiquette. See comments for the link (posting it here makes my post hang in the spam filter and is invisible).


the women pay the men no work

Ask the Italians. This is an American site.
