Redentore 2012

Redentore 2012

The Redentore feast is one of the main popular celebrations during the Venetian year. It is held on the third Sunday of July to celebrate the end of a devastating plague epidemic in the 16th century, which lead to the construction of the Redentore Church on the Giudecca island.

On Satuday evening there is traditionally a huge display of fireworks, lasting almost three quarters of an hour.

This year we went to an ad-hoc party on the Giudecca island, so we had prime seats on the shore front to enjoy the fireworks with the Salute Church and St. Mark’s as a backdrop.
