here they arrive

here they arrive

Hey, but don't let me distract you with gossips of the court. Here they arrive. The seven maries. The seven pure representatives of the seven parts of venice. 6 on the island and one on terraferma. Protected by the strength of christian soldiers from milan. Who defended italy from the armies of federico barbarossa. The same soldiers, some centuries later are given a new task. Protect and defend the 7 maries. Don't let anyone get near, or worse, touch such pure flowers.
The 7 maries tradition is an ancient one. And it was laid dormant for 7 centuries before being brought back to life half a decade ago.
