Saturday 20th July 2019 make no plans, one of the most entertaining and most anticipated evenings of Venetian summer is waiting for you! This is the Feast of the Redeemer which, for more than four centuries, has been celebrated on the third weekend of July: while it is true that Sunday is a very important day for religious Venetians - and soon you will discover why – it is also true that Saturday night has now become an unmissable occasion to spend time with friends and to admire the splendid (and long) fireworks at 23.30 which, every year, attract thousands of spectators from all over the world.
So why not choose an exclusive location like the Gabrielli Restaurant to celebrate the night of the Redeemer in Venice? The evening will begin with a relaxing aperitif, enriched with delicious fingerfoods, in the inner courtyard and then continue with the actual dinner, which will be served on the ground floor in Riva degli Schiavoni, directly overlooking St Mark’s Bay. Precisely because of its strategic location, this area is one of the most popular spots for watching the fireworks, so much so that people begin to fill the shores from the afternoon. But you won't have to worry: the mobile structures that delimit the courtyard will allow you to enjoy your dinner in peace! Your view of the fireworks will be partially covered by the crowd but you will be able to admire the highest fireworks that are still very beautiful and choreographic.
And now, start licking your lips... here's the menu:

Among the events of the 2019 Redentore, choose a dinner at the Gabrielli Restaurant in Riva degli Schiavoni: an unmissable experience to spend with your family or with your friends. Between delicious dishes, good wine and fireworks, the evening will be truly... crackling!
Let's have a closer look at the tradition of the feast of the Redeemer, an ancient tradition of the city of Venice that finds its origins in the 16th century, when the Venetian population was decimated by a terrible plague. Legend has it that the epidemic was defeated by the prayers of the survivors and by the Doge’s promise to build a temple, whose first stone was laid on the third Sunday of July 1577... that's why every year, in the third weekend of July, a votive bridge of boats is built that crosses the Giudecca Canal up to the Chiesa della Salute where thousands of believers light a candle to ask the Madonna for the gift of health precisely.
Today the Redeemer is a feast between the sacred and the profane: if on the one hand the religious tradition continues, on the other it has become an unmissable event for Venetians and tourists. The show offered by the hundreds of boats lit up in St. Mark's Bay combined with the marvel of fireworks is something extraordinary to see at least once in your life!
So, what are you waiting for? Saturday 20th July we are waiting for you at the Gabrielli Restaurant to spend the Redentore night with you!
