Festa del Redentore: Venice has several festivities which date back to the early days of the 16th/17th century. Not just one of these but also the biggest and most popular one is the Festa del Redentore. This event started as a feast to show the city’s gratefulness after the end of the terrible plague in 1576, which was responsible for the death of 50.000 inhabitants. After Venice survived this huge menace the town built a big church called il Redentore, the festivals name giver. In 2014 the traditional and annual feast will be held on July 19th and 20th and probably attract again thousands of visitors. Today the Redentore stands for a great mix of an historical, religious theme and spectacular festivities providing an amazing experience. On the schedule is usually a parade of boots beautifully decorated with balloons and lanterns, a traditional Venetian dinner and – as the spectacular highlight – a fantastic fireworks lighting up the whole city in bright and shiny colors.
