Carnevale di Venezia 2017 - official

Venice Carnival 2017

CARNIVAL of VENICE 2017 from 11th to 28th February

A BIG STAGE WHERE ARTS, TRADES AND TRADITIONS BECOME PROTAGONIST IN VENETIAN HISTORY

CREATUM VANITY AF-FAIR: an idea for a new start, a rebirth of Venice's ancient origins. Names of alleys (calli) and small town squares (campi) like “calle del forno”, “ruga dei oresi”, “campiello del remer”, “fondamenta dei vetrai”, “calle dei fuseri” or “frezzaria” are a tribute to the arts and trades, and will find their best display in St. Mark's Square.
