Carnival anticipations "Ottocento. Da Senso a Sissi - La città delle donne"
For the 150 years since the Unification of Italy, Venice reveals itself
with its feminine sensuality calling back to the famous nineteenth
century heroines of the post romantic era whom the Carnival is dedicated
to, by adding folk and exhilarating elements to the fight between the
Austrian soldiers and the members of the Committees for the Unification
The conclusion of the event will be a silent regatta of row boats along
the Canal Grande, that will be illuminated only with candles, symbolic
and suggestive symbol of rejoining with the city. Besides, Ca' Vendramin
Calergi, seat of the Casino of Venice, opens as one of the
institutional locations of the Carnival.
