    Carnival of Venice 2022

    Date: 12 February 2022 - 1 March 2022

    The Carnival of Venice 2022 (Carnevale di Venezia 2022), one of the most appreciated carnivals in the world, will take place between Saturday, February 12, and Tuesday, March 1, 2022, in the beautiful city of Venice. After the 2021 edition of the Carnival took place online, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we hope that in 2022 the festival will return to its pre-pandemic glory, and we will be able to admire the wonderful masks and costumes worn by thousands of people coming from all over the world parading once again through the narrow streets of Venice.   SHORT HISTORY The first information about a carnival in Venice dates back to 1094, when the word carnevale was mentioned for the first time in a document signed by the Doge Vitale Faliero. Back then, the carnival was an event dedicated in particular to the people from the lower classes, who, through the anonymity guaranteed by masks, could relate with the nobility of the time. The first official document declaring the Carnival of Venice a public holiday dates back to 1296, when the Senate of the Venetian Republic set it before Lent. Starting that year, for the next few centuries, the Carnival lasted Read more [...]

    Date: 16 July 2022 - 17 July 2022

    Festa del Redentore 2022 (Feast of the Redeemer 2022), one of the most important events in the Venetian calendar, will take place in the weekend of July 16-17, 2022, in Venice. Every year since the 16th century, the feast is celebrated in the third weekend of July. At first, Festa del Redentore was a purely religious event, but over the centuries profane elements were added to the religious manifestations, and today the celebration includes a party, a regatta and one of the most impressive fireworks display in the world.   SHORT HISTORY Between 1575 and 1577, a merciless plague killed about one-third of Venice’s population.
