Venice Italy Venice in 2007

The Carnival of Venice is the most celebrated event in Italy and one of the most popular feasts in the world. The Carnival of Venice officially began in 1296, when the Senate of the Republic authorized the carnival with an edict declaring the day before Lent as a day of celebration. After the fall of the Serenissima the tradition was neglected, and officially restored in1980 and since that the event was held with overwhelming success every year.

The 2007 Carnival edition is dedicated to Carlo Goldoni. The year 2007 is the three-hundred year anniversary of the birth of Venice's most famous and most representative playwright. His comedies were the most profound expression of Venetian style of life, and the characters of Commedia dell’Arte are revived each year on the carnival. This year it was a kaleidoscopic blend of events, including popular music, acrobatic performances, various arts. It featured modern dance music, as the Afro Celt Sound System, the Bollywood Brass Band, Roy Paci, Aretuska and many more. Italian Comedy performances were also staged on typical traditional Venetian comedy stages. This year program also included “enchanted forest” for children with dozens of entertainments, Carnival Nights disco, featuring the trendiest music from popular European DJs, Venezia Suona concerts with miscellaneous sets of charming music.
