On 25 April, Venice remembers and honours the patron St. mark with solemn functions and a concert of sacred music at the basilica where, under the altar, it is housed  the body of the Evangelist. According to a nice habit on the day of St. Mark's there is also the feast of bocolo: as a token of love, the Venetians offer to their women a Rosebud purchased at one of the many kiosks set up in the square and nearby streets.
