San Giuseppe, or Saint Joseph, is perhaps the most venerated saint south of Rome. In the 10th century, a drought caused a severe famine. Devotees of Saint Joseph prayed to him to bring rain, and in return, they promised to hold a feast in his honor. Rain and recovery from hunger did come, and since then, the ritual-feast of Saint Joseph has been practiced.
