CARNIVAL 1

THE CARNIVAL IN VENICE AND ITS ENCHANTING AGE – OLD CELEBRATIONS AND WONDERFUL MASKED BALLS.

THIS YEAR, CARNIVAL WILL LAST FROM JANUARY 31 TO FEBRUARY 17.

THE VERY BEST TIME TO SHOW UP IS DURING THE FINAL 10 DAYS IN ORDER TO ENJOY THE TOP MASKED  BALLS AND EVENTS SUCH AS THE  SOMPTUOUS TIME – TESTE BALLO DEL DOGE.

EACH YEAR, CARNIVAL BRINGS A DIFFERENT THEME, AND THIS YEAR IT ‘S « FOOD ».

DURING CARNIVAL, THE WHOLE VENICE TRANSFORMS INTO AN OPEN -AIR FILM SET AS CROWDS IN GLORIOUS RENAISSANCE COSTUMES FILL THE STREETS AND SQUARES WHILE IMPROMPTU BANDS ENLIVEN THE ISLAND CITY.

THE ORIGINS OF THE CARNIVAL FESTIVITIES CAN BE TRACED BACK TO THE 11TH CENTURY, WHEN PEOPLE WOULD DRESS UP IN COSTUMES AND MASKS SO NOT TO BE RECOGNISED, AND VENTURE OUT IN ANONYMITY, FREE FROM CLASS RESTRICTIONS, TO ENJOY THEMSELVES WITH NO HOLDS BARRED.

THE ZENITH CAME IN THE RENAISSANCE PERIOD, WHEN THE WHOLE OF ITALY WAS ABUZZ WITH ART, MUSIC, THEATRE.

BE THE FIRST TO EXPERIENCE VENICE ‘S ICONIC EVENT !
