Italy is holding its first divorce fair, offering services such as life coaching and beauty advice to a booming number of separating couples in the Catholic country.
The organizers said the fair, which was held in Milan on May 8-9, aimed to help divorcing people start a new, happier life.
“Smiling is key to this fair, which also offers serious, practical advice for often dramatic situations,” Franco Zanetti, who created the event, told Reuters.
The services include divorce planning, anti-stalking help, and “new look” tips, the organizers said.
Echoing similar initiatives in the United States and elsewhere in Europe, visitors will also be able to subscribe to divorce gift lists at department stores in Milan.
