Today is San Gennaro, the patron saint of Napoli. Every 19th of September people push and shove to get a front row seat in the church where a vial of San Gennaro's blood is contained. Be there early if you want to get in.
If a miracle happens and the blood turns to liquid then Naples can sleep safe. If it doesn't then something bad might happen to the city. For example, in 1980 before the earthquake the blood didn't liquefy.
Much of Naples had a day off today to celebrate San Gennaro. Unfortunately the kid in the apartment above us had a day off too. He donned his lead shoes and played ball in the house all morning. Now if he learnt some manners that would be a real miracle.
