The Redentore Festival is a highly awaited event by both Venice’s inhabitants and thousands of tourists who, every year, descend on Venice in July to watch the traditional fireworks display and the magnificent reflection on the lagoon waters that make the event even more exciting. And with venetoinside.com you can celebrate in big style: in the splendid panoramic terrace of the Hotel Gabrielli - one of the most prestigious in Venice - you will in fact enjoy a delicious fish dinner and admire in the best possible way the show in St Mark’s basin from a unique and privileged viewpoint.
For those who might not know it, the Redentore Festival has its roots in the second half of the 16th century, when Venice was struck by a terrible plague that decimated its inhabitants. Legend has it that the epidemic was defeated by the prayers of the survivors but above all by the solemn vow of the then doge Alvise Mocenigo, who promised to erect a splendid temple if the Republic of Venice was to survive such annihilation. And so it was. The project for the construction of the Basilica on the Giudecca Island was entrusted to no less than Andrea Palladio: once the first stone was laid, on the third Sunday of July 1577, a temporary small wooden church was built together with a floating walkway, connecting Venice to the Giudecca Island and used by the doge, clericals and the inhabitants. This moment is honored every year by the votive bridge of the Redentore which, during the two day-long celebration, crosses the canal.
Today, Redentore is a festival between the sacred and the profane: in addition to religious celebrations in fact, there are thousands of boats that, for the occasion, reach St Mark’s Basin to witness the incredible fireworks show, with music, colors and plays of light reflected on the water, terraces and bell towers of the city.
So why not book your dinner at Hotel Gabrielli and enjoy the show in total relaxation, from the top of its splendid panoramic terrace? Located in Riva degli Schiavoni - a 5-minute walk from St Mark’s Square - Hotel Gabrielli is housed in a stately 14th century palace and is considered one of the most exclusive accommodation facilities in Venice. In its restaurant you can taste, among other things, typical dishes from Venice’s cuisine, prepared with great care by expert chefs.
