Venice Traditions – “Madonna della Salute”

Novembre is traditionally known in Venice as the month of the Madonna della Salute (Literally Madonna of Health). It is a cherished holiday established more than three centuries ago following a vow taken by the city during a terrible plage that decimated its population. It will be celebrated on November 21 with a ceremonial procession over a specially-built pontoon bridge across the Grand Canal to the famous Basilica of the Madonna della Salute, Baldassare Longhena’s Baroque architectonic masterpiece. There, people will pray to the Madonna for protection for their dear ones.
