In Italian popular culture, Friday the 17th (and not the 13th) is considered a day of bad luck.[16] The origin of this belief could be traced in the writing of number 17, in ancient Latin: XVII. By shuffling the digits of the number you can easily get the word VIXI (I lived, hence now I’m dead) omen of bad luck.[17] In fact, in Italy, 13 is generally considered a lucky number.[18] However, due to Americanization, young people consider Friday the 13th unlucky as well.[19]
