However, the background of Venice gives chills and an atmosphere that won’t probably be experienced elsewhere.

Many times, we talk about Venice and San Marco as the most beautiful ‘lounge’ of the world, and it is true..in fact it has been place of some historical concerts too!
Let’s see the most important concerts for us.
1) Pink Floyd
TEDxMestre is a project born in the February of 2019, in order to bring to Venice the American format of TED conferences, through TEDx events: local events organised in an indipendent way but with the same spirit to tell ideas and values of the territorial community. In just six months, a group of local, young volunteers had been able to build the first edition, dedicated to the topic of ‘awakening’, and which had involved more than 700 people. The chosen location was the modern M9, the new museum in Mestre’s centre.
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!
I have to admit that I’ve never been at “La Fenice” before, so I was really thrilled when Atelier Tiepolo invited us at this amazing event.
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.
Unfortunately, Italy is, by datas, one of the more affected areas on the planet.
The COVID-19, which didn’t seem to represent a big risk until two days ago, has infected more than 100 people in the North of Italy, and the number is increasing.
Institutions still don’t know why this explosion of cases has been spreading so suddenly, but that’s why measures of security and precautions have been immediately taken.
Venice is always amazing, but during Carnival it’s just something that is worthy seeing at least one time in life.
The celebration has officially started with the first Venetian Night, where a joyful procession of decorated boats, baloons and tricks of light have crossed the Canal Grande.
Colors, costumes, masks, cheerful processions of smiling people: that’s what you can see if you decide to visit Venice in these weeks.
Colors, ancient costumes, wigs, eccentric make up and most of all… masks! Carnival 2020 is in the air, and we’re here to tell you everything about this famous tradition, that for years has been part of our Venice and its shapes.
Venice is always a good choice, but even more for New Year’s Eve.
Despite the cold, humid weather, and the danger of high water, Venice can offer much during this period of the year: good food, nice parties, fireworks and arts. Continue reading “New Year’s Eve 2019/2020 in Venice”
