Unlucky for some

We all know why 13 is considered an unlucky number for most Christians (the 13 Apostles). But in Italy I have discovered that for most people the number 13 is not considered that unlucky but 17 is much more so. I have been told by some that it has to do with 17 written in Roman numerals i.e. XVII which somehow relates to death whereas others have said it relates to the 17 genuflections performed by Muslims during prayer.

Can anyone provide me with the right answer? Please support your answer with some convincing evidence/reference.
Thanks, Ian
