The traditional ceremony takes place three times a year: in May, today 19 September, on the occasion of the anniversary of the death of San Gennaro which occurred in 305 in Pozzuoli, and the December 16th on the occasion of the Feast of the Patronage of San Gennaro, which commemorates the day in 1631 when the eruption of Vesuvius stopped after the saint’s invocation. The ampoule is therefore exposed three times a year with the Blood of the Saint if it melts the city of Naples is blessed, if it does not melt during the day the event is repeated a maximum of two more times. If even in the last attempt the blood does not melt, it is seen as a harbinger of misfortune and disaster for the city and beyond.

the story of the saint

Gennaro was born in Benevento on 21 April 272, at least according to the most accredited convention even if some sources claim he was born in Naples, but he was certainly bishop of Benevento. During the persecutions of Christians carried out by Diocletian, the bishop refused to recant and was sentenced to death. He was beheaded on September 19, 305, according to some legends he was condemned to be killed by some ferocious beasts but was beheaded because the animals bowed before him. According to some beliefs, the stone where his blood fell, which is preserved in Pozzuoli, would turn red on the day his martyrdom is remembered.
