The Rooster of Fortune Myth: In the pre-dawn hours of a day in 1516, Giuliano de Medici, a powerful Florentine patriarch, was woken early by a rooster crowing. This irritant was actually a blessing in disguise, because the raucous sounds saved him from an assassination attempt. Ever since then, the rooster has symbolized blessings, prosperity and wellbeing to Italians.
