Soon the squares and streets of Venice will be filled with the colorful costumed masses that anually come from around the globe to celebrate Carnival, which this year will start earlier than usual on January 27th. As always, the most important events take place on Thursday and especially on Fat Tuesday, February 13th. The following day, with Ash Wednesday, the party officially closes and gives way to Lent. Venice is known in Italy and abroad as one of the most elegant and lively places to celebrate carnivale. From the beginning, century after century, masks and costumes have been inspired with creativity that knows no bounds.
The list of events is appetizing to those who hunger for artistic celebrations, perhaps this year more than ever before. There are always the traditional festivities, which are recreated year after year- such as the exciting flight of the Angel on February 4 which officially opens the celebration at the Piazza San Marco.
