Venice celebrated the Redentore Feast on 14 and 15 June! And yes, for the first time in almost 20 years, a thunderstorm hit two hours before the fireworks show took place at midnight :-(

If you couldn’t come to Venice, take a look at THIS VIDEO BY MATTEO (link opens to Youtube) in which you can enjoy all 40 minutes of the fireworks in 2018 :-)

and all theย menus,ย recipes, plus our blog post on theย historical backgroundย of this Feast. Following the fireworks and all the boats gathering in the Bacino di San Marco in the evening of Saturday, 14 July 2018, the Feast continued on Sunday, 15 July, and the pontoon bridge was open until midnight.

Enjoy the video :-) Iris xx
