The 2011 Venice Carnival from February 28 to March 8, 2001 shall be completely new next year when compared with the previous editions as the new art director shall be Davide Rampello, who has a long experience in events and communication. Next year edition shall be very lucky as there shall be a couple of important celebrations during the Carnival: the 150° Anniversary of Italy and the Woman’s Day on March 8, 2001 exactly on the “Fat Tuesday”. These two events have inspired the name of the 2011 Venetian Carnival as “Eight Hundred – from Sense to Sissy, the city of women” with reference to 1954 Lucchino Visconti’s movie dedicated to Princess Sissy and her timeless elegance. The 2011 Carnival edition shall be open with the traditional “Venetian Feast” and closed with a silent parade of row boats along a candle light Gran Canal. All the museums, art galleries and churches shall be open till late hosting a lot of different events, expositions and shows with the aim to join art and people in a big and cultural hug with the city. Our Reception shall be more than pleased to let you have any additional information about the Venice Carnival and its program invite you to visit our Special Offer page to discover our prices and availability for your next holiday in Venice at the Hotel Alle Guglie.
