16 Sep The Miracle of San Gennaro: the liturgy in live streaming and a special Digital Experience
Saturday 19 September 2020 at 09:30 in live streaming on the official Facebook page of the Chapel of San Gennaro and on the website www.cappellasangennaro.it/en, on the occasion of the patron saint’s feast, it will be possible to participate remotely in the Miracle of San Gennaro.
For the occasion, the Deputation of the Real Cappella del Tesoro di San Gennaro offers a special Digital Experience in live streaming: ‘‘Aspettando il miracolo‘, at 9.30 pm, the day before the liturgy, in Italian language, and ‘After the celebration of the Miracle‘, on the afternoon of September 19th at 5pm (Rome time), in English language.
Three times a year, on official and solemn dates, San Gennaro renews his bond with Naples and his blood is exposed in front of thousands of citizens and faithful. And every time we hope it will melt. The most famous anniversary is the next one, that of 19 September, the day of the beheading of the young bishop of Benevento. The whole city stops waiting for the liquefaction of the blood attributed to the martyr and contained in ampoules, kept in a safe in the Chapel of the Treasury. An ancient rite, which has been celebrated for many centuries and which is still a symbol of good luck for the Neapolitans.
This year the party will take place but without crowds and in a ‘reduced’ version, with reduced entrances to the cathedral and large screens outside on the churchyard of the Naples Cathedral. The gatherings and the traditional kiss of the faithful to the relics of the patron’s blood will be strictly prohibited.
Necessary measures which, inevitably, will prevent many faithful from being present. For this reason, the liturgy will be broadcast in live streaming on the website and on the facebook page of the Chapel of the Treasure of San Gennaro. D’Uva, who manages the audio guide service and visits inside the Chapel, will also this time, after the success of the first live streaming of the miracle of San Gennaro, organize and communicate this new event on the channels managed for account of the Deputation (website and social network).
To guide the spectators in this live broadcast there will be Paolo Jorio, director of the Museo del Tesoro di San Gennaro.
And it will always be him, Paolo Jorio, who will guide the participants in the special OMG Digital Experience organized for this long-awaited event! The title of the digital experience is ‘‘After the celebration of the Miracle‘, scheduled in live streaming on Saturday 19 September at 5pm (Rome Time). To participate, simply book at the special prize of € 2 on the website www.ohmyguide.tours and you will receive via email the link to participate in the live broadcast in the desired language.
We are waiting for you in live streaming!
