The Chinese community of Rome held an early Chinese New Year celebration in the historic Piazza del Popolo. Usually, the Lunar New Year starts on the 16th of February.

One tourist said that he liked that people celebrate Chinese New Year in Italy, and it was surprising to see this.

This Chinese New Year celebrates the Year of the Dog as based on the traditional Chinese zodiac.

Difficult words: Lunar New Year (when the new year happens based on the moon’s cycles), the Chinese zodiac (a twelve-year cycle that people celebrate and each year relates to an animal sign).
