The Feast-Day of the Madonna della Salute

The Madonna della Salute, Unknown icon Cretan painter, 12th century


Celebrated every year on 21 November in memory of the terrible plague that hit the city between 1630 and 1631, it is one of the most absolutely fascinating events the city has to offer, with an atmosphere of magic, mysticism and paganism rolled into one, where the odor of incense and candles mixes with that of cotton candy and “castradina” (a traditional meat dish). A perfect opportunity to immerse oneself in the authentic Venice, crossing the Votive Bridge on the Canal Grande, visit the Basilica designed by Longhena and admire its treasures, on all the great canvas of Tintoretto's The Wedding at Cana, hosted in the Sacristy of the Basilica.
