  • Feast of SS. Pietro and Paolo, June 29th

Feast dedicated to the patron saints of the city. This recurrence is born from the tradition that wants the two apostles arrived in Rome from Judea in the same period and martyred the same day, even if in different places. According to an ancient and consolidated memory in Via Ostiense, among today's numbers 106 and 108 and about three hundred meters from the Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls, took place the last fraternal greeting between Peter and Paul, separated, to be sent to martyrdom.
