The Redeemer feast 2014

The “Redeemer celebration dayfesta del Redentore, is one of the most important events of the city of Venice, which harmonize the religious aspect and the spectacular one, at the apex of which we find the fantastic pyrotechnic event on the night of July 19, 2014, which involves the whole population, and thousands of visitors! The stage of fires is the Saint Mark's basin: light games and colour, between spires, domes and bell towers light up Venice in its glory! Tradition want that the population  since dusk ship in the basin of San Mark and the Giudecca Canal with decorated and lighted boats, ready to celebrate all together, and to act as a backdrop to a Venice as you never saw!


The feast of the Redeemer was founded in memory of a terrible plague that hit Venice in 1577, at the end of which was built on the island of Giudecca, a Palladian church named “ Redeemer” as a celebrating thanksgiving. On the occasion of this anniversary, so felt by the population of Venice and the many lovers of Venice, the Church is on a pilgrimage through an impressive bridge of boats along 330 meters joining the Zattere to Giudecca Island, carried out exceptionally during the celebrations on the Giudecca Canal. The celebrations include a solemn function of the Patriarch and a gondolas Regatta!
