Festa del Redentore 2009
From 18 July 2009 to 19 July 2009
The celebrations climax in the grand firework display in the bay of Saint Marks, which illuminates the Venetian skies enhancing the already magic atmosphere. However the party goes on until dawn with music and more on the Lido. The following morning sees a return to the religious side of the festival, with the mass at the Redentore church, built by Palladio. After the mass the boat-bridge which connects the Zattere with the Guidecca is consecrated and the prelate begins his peregrination (which lasts until evening) throughout the city giving his blessing. The two days also see a wealth of events which give added colour to this magnificent weekend. Starts: Saturday 7p.m.
Ends: Sunday 7p.m.
