Carnevale Di Venezia


The famous Carnevale Di Venezia has a traditon that dates back over a thousand years to 1094 where carnivale festivities as public entertainment in the days leading up to Lent were decreed by the Government of the Doge Vitale Falier. The carnivale lasted for over a month up to Ash Wedensday and the Venetians celebrated wearing masks and colourful costumes. The beginning of the carnivale starts with special traditional celebrations such as the warrior dance of the ” Morescoa” and the “Svolo del Turco ” ( flight of the Turk ), which is a dangerous stunt. Carnival represents a sort of  ” time out of time ” in which fortunes are reversed: the poor become rich, the powerless become powerful. Social customs are overturned; women aggressively pursue men, for example. During the time of Carnevale, it’s important to remain anonymous, so when “real time” returns, it returns to exactly the same place.

“This lavishly decorated boat with the Goddess Libra ( who is ruled by Venus), was used every year on Ascension Day up to 1798 to take the doge out to the Adriatic Sea to perform the ‘Marriage of the Sea’ – a ceremony that symbolically wedded Venice to the sea every year on the ‘Festa della Sensa’
