Everything you need to know about the extravagant Carnevale di Venezia 2019

Carnevale di Venezia is an annual event, but its dates change each year, 2019 celebrations has started on February the 16th and will carry on until the March the 5th.


Under the rule of the Emperor of the Romans and later Emperor of Austria - Francis II, the festival was prohibited entirely in 1797, and the use of masks became forbidden. 

 

It re-emerged gradually in the nineteenth century, but only for short periods and only for private feasts, where it became an occasion for artistic creations and expressions.


In the effort to bring the history and culture back to the City, the Government re-established The Carnival  only in 1979.

There are many events, competitions, re-enactments and regatta which form this grand celebration. This year's celebrations kicked off with a giant floating rat and ''Blame The Moon'' event.

While  Venice and its inhabitants are still in carnival mood, Intercult Sweden (River//Cities partner) is heading this week to Venice for a series of meetings, learning/teaching activities and joint 

staff meeting including support by an informal educator - all  within the I_Improve Erasmus+ Project.

Meetings and activities are taking place between 21st-25th February. Venti di Cultura, River//Cities partner is a local host.


You can find the full list of events with their description on Venice Events site and the image gallery on The Local It site.
