In case you have been reading too much of this blog and you are not too familiar with Italian history, Catholic Church and its Miracles, you must know that San Gennaro is the patron of Naples and a man whose blood liquifies twice a year in a church in Naples. Not always, but, if it does, it will bring good luck to the city and the region. Since I saw Gomorra, last night, I pray that the blood liquifies all the time.
Read the story of San Gennaro, the real San Gennaro and not the tomato, here. It is Bianca Ottone’s newsletter which I always find very interesting. Her website, My Italian Family helps you trace back your Italian roots or plan visits to the villages your ancestors came from.
