  Venice Carnival 2011!

Venice Carnival 2011. 19th February to 8th March 2011.

Venice Carnival.
NINETEENTH CENTURY, from Senso to Sissi, to City of Women
Venice, its islands and mainland:
19th February to 8th March 2011.

The Venice Carnival is the largest and most important Venetian festival, an appreciated cocktail of tradition, entertainment, history and transgression in a unique city, a festival that attracts thousands of people from around the world each year.
The Carnival has very old origins. It is a festival that celebrates the passage from winter into spring, a time when seemingly anything is possible, including the illusion where the most humble of classes become the most powerful by wearing masks on their faces.

In 2011, the programme of the Venice Carnival will have a culturally and celebratory important connotation: with the artistic direction of David Rampello, the event will have as the leitmotifs the eighteen hundreds and their Venetian dimensions, the Italian unification and Women's Day.

This explains the references to the films "Senso" by Luchino Visconti and "City of Women" by Federico Fellini, in addition to "Sissi", a Nineteenth-century icon of style and custom.

The 2011 calendar provides the organizers of the Carnival of Venice two cues of great symbolic value, that is, the celebration of 150 years of a united Italy and of March 8, which will host both Fat Tuesday as well as Women's Day.

Over the weekend of February 19-20, the Venice Carnival 2011 will be dedicated to Venetian tradition, with rowboats participating in a parade along the evocative Grand Canal, illuminated in candlelight for the occasion. The program will continue from Saturday, February 26-March 8, full of festive events and spectacular programming. Just as in the film "Senso" by Luchino Visconti, when the aristocratic Count Ussoni defended the importance of popular involvement, the Carnival of Venice, 2011 will stimulate the collaboration not only of institutions but also of the citizens and guests of Venice.
