The Redeemer Festival
The Redeemer Festival, the Venetians' favourite festivity, where religious and spectacular aspects walk hand in hand.
Thousands are attracted by splendid fireworks reflecting on the magnificent St Mark's Basin on Saturday night; a great kaleidoscope of colours but above all emotions!
This event is dedicated to commemorating the end of the plague epidemic that struck Venice between 1575 and 1577.
This, which is also referred to as the 'most famous' night by the Venetians, is a very important part of the customs of the inhabitants of the lagoon city, of the gastronomic traditions and celebrations handed down by their ancestors that have gradually made this international 'Venetian' festival and one of the city's biggest tourist attractions.
