Venice Carnival 2011: February 26 – March 8.

posted by on January 5th, 2011

OTTOCENTO, from Senso to Sissi. City of Women.

Coinciding with two dates, the Italian celebrations for the 150th anniversary of the unification of Italy and the coincidence of Mardi Gras with the March 8, International Women’s Day, the 2011 edition will stretch an extra¬†weekend.
The event will close with a spectacular and quiet rowing race along the Grand Canal, which will be illuminated for the occasion only by candlelight, symbolic and evocative gesture of reunion with the city.
