The southern Italian city of Naples has long held the alternative title urbs sanguinam or City of Blood, for the many esoteric and mystic happening that occurred with that life-giving liquid within its confines.

At his feast, the residents carry his relics, crosses, and treasures through the narrow city streets, before enjoying a communal feast.
