Up and Down the Bridges of Venice

Walk for Solidarity

Su e Zo (“Up and Down the Bridges” walk) is a spring event that involves thousands of people in a walk for solidarity around Venice alleys: young and not-so-young people, families, school groups, sport teams, all together in a day devoted to meeting, friendship and solidarity.

Every year different itineraries twist and turn through the less known areas of the city on the water, also touching its most famous landmarks. A day of sustainable tourism, respecting the city we are in, its art, its history, its real soul and its essence..

Any earnings coming from the “Up and Down the Bridges” walk have always been offered to support groups working in the educational or social fields, especially the Salesian missions around the world.

The “Up and Down the Bridges” walk is a real day of celebration: several folk groups put on their performance either in Saint Mark’s square or in the smaller open spaces along the itinerary, creating a jubilation of colours and sounds that leave happy memories in everyone.

Every year the event involves an average of 10,000-12,000 participants. Almost 500 volunteers help in the refreshments areas and along the two suggested routes. The Su e Zo per i Ponti di Venezia also offers its participants a cultural itinerary to discover the less known places in the city.

The 42nd edition of the Su e Zo per i Ponti di Venezia will take place soon.
