Just in time for Valentine's Day, a stunning pro-gay marriage video from Italy is making the rounds of the blogosphere.

The slickly-produced clip, titled "I'll Marry You," depicts a handsome Italian gay couple tying the knot. But their female friends aren't left out in the cold -- in a surprise twist, a lesbian couple also gets engaged at their reception.

The video was produced by Italian LGBT advocacy group Arcigay and features music by Lorenzo 'Jovanotti' Cherubini, according to Towleroad.

The clip is similar in both tone and execution to the Australian "It's Time" clip, which went viral last year. You can view that video here.

Though Italy bans discrimination on the grounds of race, religion, ethnicity and nationality, the government reportedly voted against a bill that would have extended similar protections to its LGBT residents last year.
