The main theme of this edition, the heritage of fantasy and fairy-tale as a narrative metaphor of life.

For the Venetian Carnival of this year, we will try the masking inspired to: tales of historic European tradition, Arab and Middle Eastern tales, votive symbols of African cultures and allegories of Mesoamerican Indian, Mongolian and ancient Cathay.

The carnival event, which will take place from February 15 to March 4, will have a full and very interesting program, inspired by the theme of 2014.

In addition to the annual contest for the best mask, many events dedicated to the world of fantasy:

- “THE THEATRE CONFERENCE OF FANTASTIC ZOOLOGY” from the “Handbook of Fantastic Zoology” by Jorge Luis Borges.
Dramaturgical adaptation and direction: Giuseppe Emiliani.

- “THE TALE OF PRINCE IVAN, BIRD OF FIRE AND GREY WOLF”.
Russian animated fairy tale for children.

- “THE GOLDEN APPLES OF THE LAKE ERME”.

A lot of fun, parties and events to visit one of the most beautiful cities of the world during one of the most beautiful
festivals in Italy.
