This year (more than ever) it will be to be lived in joy, to discover what wonderful costumes have been prepared in the long time we stayed at home. It will be an opportunity to have fun discovering the most hidden corners and traditions of a city that is still alive, where time has stopped…
As in the tradition, when after the great epidemics we gave ourselves to the festivities, the Carnival of Venice in 2022 will be the event to celebrate the end of the pandemic. It will be a slightly different Carnival, because the anti-Covid regulations have affected the programs to avoid large gatherings, but at the same time the party will be spread in the “campi” (small squares) and even in the most discreet “calli” (Venetian streets): no secret will be hidden from you!
The party conquers the “campi”
Piazza San Marco will be an extraordinary photo area: hundreds of masks of all types and colors, phantasmagorical costumes worn with coquetry by people who have worked for an entire year to make them. Everyone walks around to show off and have their picture taken in the most beautiful square in the world. They will joke with you, challenging you to discover who is hiding under the mask. Don’t back out: it’s Carnival!
But don’t stop there: in the heart of the city there are another seven “campi” to discover with parties, juggling shows, animations and cheerful masquerades.
