Among Traditions, Festivals and Art: Celebration of St Mary of Health in Venice.
St Mary of Health celebrations take place in Venice every year on 21st November. On this occasion, Venetians use to celebrate this day joining the Basilica of St Mary of Health and asking the “Black Madonna” (on the high altar) health wishes for themselves or a relative. All day long, the basilica is filled by people who want to pray.
In Rio Terà dei Catecumeni, celebrations keep going on with balloons, cotton candy and candies!
