Candles and boots

21 November, 2016

The 21st of November is often in Venice a day of Candles and boots, as most of the time the “Madonna Della Salute” day is rainy and cold, sometimes with “acqua alta” too.

It’s nice to see every year how Venetians remember this old tradition and the vow made by a Doge almost 400 years ago. It creates a link between old and new generations.

Another “Festa della Salute” day is passed and, as usual, all Venetians has made the pilgrimage to the church of Santa Maria Della Salute to light candles (and buy Peppa Pig balloons to the kids), as they promised 384 years ago.
