Festa del Rendento is Venice’s most traditional event. Jodeka Island is located in the historic south-center of Venice, the center of this water body.
In 1575 the bubonic plague spread in the Republic of Venice. In two years, 50,000 people died of the disease.
In mid-1576 they asked for divine help and decided that if the plague had ended, they would be a new church.
The church was given responsibility for the construction of the church, the main architect of the Republic of Venice, André Palidi.
Beladio founded the foundation of the Savior’s Church (the Church of the Savior) on the basis of the Holy Cross of the Holy Cross of Judica Island in May 1577.
In July 1977, Venice was declared free of plague, and then a procession came out in the city.
The parade of St. Mark arrived at the new church across the bridge over the boats. This was the beginning of the tradition that continues to this day.
Sitting from July
In the memory of the Plagi family, Venice celebrates the Festa del Randentore on the third Sunday of July each year.
From the boat to the terrace, corner corner of Judekara Island joins this pool.
The whole island is decorated with roses, balloons, colorful skulls and there are huge fireworks during the night.
One of the main attractions of this watery body is a banquet the day before. Families living in Venice, especially those who live on the beach in front of San Marco or in boats or on the beach, eat a wooden table.
This is a great opportunity to impose a collective ban, there is no obstacle in that. “The whole carnival is focused on one day,” says local artist Claudia Coro.
The identity of the island
About 5,000 people live on the island of Godecara, many of them older. Their roots are linked to the identity of this island.
This island is not connected to any permanent bridge from Venice’s main city, so its authenticity remains.
This island is largely left to an increasing number of tourists in Venice.
Prior to the establishment of the industrial center of Porto Margarita in Venice at the beginning of the twentieth century, the Judicoes were the only major industrial center. There were handicrafts, factories, shipyards and dry cleaning shops.
Now the factories have been closed. There are small houses and gardens on the island. Many home foreigners.
People stop gossiping here, they are planting paperwork there as well as old workshops as well as new international studios.
Most island residents live long ago in the main city, but some indigenous people still reside here. Claudia Kuro and her family are one of them.
On the morning of the morning, wooden sticks are placed on the banks of the canal, in squares and intersections.
People are competing for the best place. They make marks for themselves to reserve space.
For those who are home or shop towards the coast, they enjoy it comfortably.
Claudia decided that on Saturday night he would be in his studio with his friends. Until the 1960s, her grandmother’s sister ran the bakery in this place.
Traditionally this is celebrated with family members aged 80 years old.
She sings folklore in Venice, where traditional food such as calf, buffalo, sardine and fish are made.
The Festa del Rendentor is the only occasion of the year, when Judekacca Island is connected to Venice.
For this reason, a bridge was built about 300 meters away linking the city with the Church of the Savior.
This bridge consists of wood and steel on floating rafts, reminiscent of the first bridge made of boats in the sixteenth century, from which the city’s inhabitants reached the new church.
He begins by opening the bridge at 7 pm. People arrive at the island church from a temporary bridge and participate in group prayer or charity draws.
“The bridge that links us to Venice is good, but it’s enough for two days, because the water protects us,” said Claudia’s grandmother Maria Klora.
Once the bridge opens, the party begins. The St. Mark’s Basin is full of beautifully decorated boats.
The flickering light rises. The number of fairy tales filled with yellow balloons raises water and music begins to sound.
People bring food to their tables and everyone starts to eat with each other.
The grand fireworks begin at 11 pm to see all the people settle down.
This fireworks for 45 minutes is fantastic. At that time the lights and music are reduced.
People are amazed to see their reflections in fireworks and water.
Music and dance begin after the fireworks that continue throughout Venice until the morning.
Only in Venice
The next day, there is another beautiful tradition – the boat race. Many teams competing in different colors compete with each other.
Claudia’s brother Claudio has been a sea consultant for 10 years. “For me, the concert takes place on Sunday when people stand on the banks of the coast and watch the Regata,” he says.
“Many years ago, I used to run, the snobs in this game enjoy it a lot, the real party is just Sunday.”
