In this chapter we discuss one of the most felt and most colorful events in the world, the famous Venice Carnival.
The propensity of the Venetians for the intrigue is fully manifested during the famous Venice Carnival, one of the most appreciated and known festivals in the world which had as meaning "the farewell to the meat", as it precedes the abstinence of the pre-Easter period.
This event, celebrated in Venice for the first time in the 11th century, consisted of two months of revelry and wildness, where parties and banquets, masks and costumes that ensured anonymity and made any social distinction disappear.
A carefree period that enveloped the city, free from prejudices and daily habits, where actors and spectators united in this great stage of figures and colors.
Today, however, numerous events are organized in which everyone can participate by buying their own mask and enjoying, thus, the show that only this city can offer, or simply admiring and photographing the various parades of traditional costumes held in Piazza San Marco.
The main day is that of the first Sunday where, in a similar look to the original one, an artist secured to a metal cable descends from the bell cell of the bell tower of San Marco towards the square crowded with people celebrating, the famous "Flight Angel ". Do not miss the Venice Carnival because it can offer unforgettable moments in a truly memorable scenario.
