Monday, January 13th, 2014

Hello lovelies!

If you are planning a week end in Venice for the famous Carnival, which will keep the town busy from the 15th February to the 4th March, you can’t miss the experience of a masquerade ball in an old Venetian theatre not far from St Mark’s square!

A masks ball in a pretty different context, far from the private inaccessible palazzi, will take place on Saturday, March 1st 2014. This will be an exclusive and original way to experience the Venice Carnaval!

The dress code is Venetian ball costumes, but please don’t forget that the event’s motto is party, relax and free your fantasy/creativity!

Here some ideas to get the look!

  • Entrance to Theatre between 20:30 and 21:00
  • Welcome cocktail
