GRAND BALL LA FENICE – VENICE CARNIVAL 2020

These are very strange days, everybody is at home and nobody can go out  because of a Virus that is influencing our life and our habits. But Grand Ball La Fenice is my last wonderful memory of a Venice full of energy!

In the last few hours, Italy has been the centre of the global attention.

We all know about the Coronavirus, a new illness that originates from China and is now frightening the whole world.
