Venice Carnival 2017

CARNIVAL of VENICE 2017 from 11 to 28 February

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

CREATUM: 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 be at their best in St. Mark's Square.
