After the preview, a week later starts the logn awaited Carnival in Serenissima. A very packed schedule waits for the whole city and its visitors, a festive and coloured flooding, full of XIX century costumes and traditions taking your breath away.
As it was anticipate, for the 150th anniversary of Italian Unification the tradition of a Carnival theme was recoverder: this year theme is “Ottocento-da Senso a Sissi-the city of women”, chosen for the coincidence between Shrove Tuesday, that signs the end of celebrations, and Women’s Day, on March, 8th.
