Venice - Carnevale di Venezia - Venice Carnival 2011

Venice Carnival 2011 - Venice, Italy.

 

The Venice Carnival, or the Carnevale di Venezia, is an annual festival, held in Venice, Italy. Carnival starts around two weeks before Ash Wednesday and ends Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras, the day before Ash Wednesday. Re-launched two decades ago, Venice Carnival was immediately regarded both in Italy and abroad as an event not to be missed. Venice Carnival is steeped in history, charm and tradition: its inhabitants and tourists alike have taken a keen interest in it, thanks to its mix of transgression, art, history and culture in one of the most unique cities in the world.
