The Eagle's flight 2019
Arianna Fontana Aquila del Carnevale di Venezia 2019
For 2019 carnival edition, the show of the flight of the Eagle, “Volo dell’Aquila” will return with another spectacular flight from the bell tower to the stage in San Marco Square.
Arianna Fontana, champion of Short Track with eight Olympic medals, will “fly” over the most beautiful square in the world, at the end of the twelve tolls of the “marangona”, attracting everyone’s eyes on the Olympic colors. With her honest and pretty face, the prestigious palmares and the passion for sport, Arianna has been an extraordinary testimonial of Milan-Cortina’s candidacy at Tokyo for the 2026 Winter Olympic Games.
The protagonist of the Flight of the Eagle, chosen by Marco Maccapani in 2018, was Renzo Rosso CEO of DIESEL.
Year after year, this second flight is filled with new ideas and fascination to confirm the choice made years ago to include this event in the Carnival celebrations, which over the years has been performed by Fabrizia D’Ottavio, Francesca Piccinini, Carolina Kostner, the talented Giusy Versace, Saturino Celani and Melissa Satta.
To attend the shows, it is recommended to arrive and get in position with suitable advance. It is not recommended to stay in the most crowded zones for those who have walking difficulties, strollers, pushchairs, etc. One-ways could be established and there could be changes to the pedestrian practicability. Because of the new regulations, the access to the shows’ area could be closed in case of maximum capacity established.
THE ACCESS CONTROL AND PEOPLE COUNTING SYSTEM IS ACTIVE FROM 8.00 A.M.
