The feast of Santa Zita

On 27 April each year the city of Lucca celebrates Santa Zita. Piazza S.Frediano and square Amphitheatre are covered with colorful flowers and plants to pay homage to the Holy, the patron saint of maids.
Santa Zita was born in 1218 to a peasant family in Monsagrati. Girl humble and generous towards the poor, worked as a maid at the rich Lucchese family of Fatinelli. It is said that one day, the boss, meeting Santa Zita with her apron full of food to be distributed in charity, churches so uncompromising that it would bring. Zita replied "Flowers and Foliage" and apron appeared miraculously flowers and foliage. April 27, 1278, Santa Zita died Fatinelli and decided to bury her in the family chapel in the Basilica of S.Frediano where even today the faithful may venerate. On September 5, 1696 Pope Innocent XII sanctioned the cult of Santa.
Today Santa Zita is a party deeply felt by the Lucchese that traditionally use exchange daffodils blessed.
