FESTA DEL REDENTORE

Third sunday of July (fireworks on saturday)

 

The Redentore (Redeemer) Feast is a deeply felt celebration in Venice as it combines religion with entertainment, thanks to the Saturday night phantasmagorical fireworks’ display attracting thousands of visitors: a kaleidoscope of shades, from a game of light and colours on the inimitable setting in St. Mark’s Basin, lights up the spires, domes and bell towers of the city.

STREETS IN VENICE

 

Venice street signs are unique. Unlike in any other city, the names of the streets, alleys, and squares in Venice are written directly on the walls of buildings. By looking around a square, for example, you could see a number of signs stenciled onto whitewashed rectangles, called nizioleti, which in Venetian dialect literally means "little sheets". Besides the names of streets, bridges, squares and canals, the nizioleti also tell you the six districts in which Venice is split: Castello, Cannaregio, San Marco, Dorsoduro, San Polo and Santa Croce.

Until the end of the eighteenth century, Venice street names were not fixed by the Venetian Republic: they owed their origin to oral tradition. Only during the nineteenth century, house numbers and place names were clearly written on the walls of the city. Many of the streets were named after saints (Campo San Polo, Campo Santi Giovanni e Paolo, Campo Santa Margherita; crafts (Calle dei Fabri, Ruga dei Spezieri, Calle dei Saoneri); merchants or goods (Calle del Forno, Calle del Frutariol, Riva del Vin). Besides, you can also see how the nizioleti record the names of the noble families who ruled Venice (Contarini, Mocenigo, Zane, Albrizzi, etc.), or the presence of communities of foreigners in the lagoon. Good examples include Calle dei Albanesi, dei Greci, dei Tedeschi and dei Turchi. Also, many places in Venice took their names from historical facts or even from legendary events.

Find out more about some of the most curious Venetian nizioleti and their history. You can find some helpful street terminology in this small glossary of Venetian most used terms.
