Festa del Redentore 2012 a Venezia

Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th July 2012

The Festa del Redentore is one of the most celebrated events in Venice.

It is the celebration of the end of the pestilence in 1577; venetian people commemorate that according to the most rigorous tradition, where religious and profane aspects go together.

A bridge of boats is mounted and people can reach on foot, on pilgrimage, the Chiesa della Giudecca, built in vow at the end of the terrible pestilence.

As tradition at the sunset the boats, decorated with branches and coloured lit up Chinese lanterns, reach Bacino San Marco and the Canale della Giudecca.

On the boat you consume the dishes, that are prepared following the tradition of venetian cooking, expecially fish products as sarde in saor (fried pilchards pickled with onion, vinegar and pine kernels), folpeti (boiled octopusses with salad) and many others.

Waiting for the fireworks display, that starts at 11.30 pm and lasts well into the night, you have dinner, then you can sing and dance with the company.

It is typical to dive by night after having spent many hours eating, but also drining the typical prosecco.

Festa del Redentore 2012

14th July 2012

The Festa del Redentore or Feast of the Redeemer is an important event for the Venetians and one of the city’s most traditional festivities. It is also quite ancient, dating back to 1577 when Venice was freed from the plague.

At that time the Doge commissioned Andrea Palladio to build a church dedicated to Cristo Redentore (Christ the Redeemer) on the Island of Giudecca.

The event is held each year on the third Saturday in July when a floating bridge of barges is set up connecting Giudecca to the rest of Venice.



In the early afternoon all sorts of brightly-painted vessels, boats and gondolas start flocking into St. Mark’s Bay and the Giudecca Canal. Families, friends, spectators celebrate together, eating, drinking dancing and singing until the the fireworks begin at 11.30 and then enjoy the breathtaking 40-minute show.

An incredible night you won’t forget…
