La festa del redentore, is a 500 years old religious celebration and a moment of intense gathering for the locals. In the evening many venetians sit on their boats moored in the Saint Mark Basin and pass each other food and drinks from one boat to the other. When the night comes, a 45 min long fireworks show starts. The following morning is the moment for the religious procession: believers ,as well as lay people who just enjoy this tradition, cross the long bridge of barges between the Zattere and the Giudecca to light up a candle in the Chiesa del Redentore.
