Day and month names all small case MINT 18


I am having a weird problem with the terminal command date on Linux MINT. When I issue the date command both the name of the day and the name of the month are all small case, but this only happens when my LANG variable is different from en_US. For example with LANG=it_IT the result is sab 10 set, while with LANG=en_US it is Sat Sep 10.
This is the first time I've been using this distro and it really seems a strange behaviour for such a simple command. I have found nothing on the internet regarding this issue; I know it is minor but it's quite annoying since I've been using the same command on many different UNIX distros and all are working fine.
Thank you very much for your help!

I have no idea why this is any different from your other distros, but I should point out that days of the week and months like sabato and settembre shouldn't be initially capitalized in Italian.

I agree that taken individually they should be written in small case, however when they form a date they are usually written with the first letter capitalised. In any case I wonder if there is an option to change this behaviour in MINT, since I use those names to form a directory tree and it looks neater with the capitalisation.
