Venezia header - Riva degli Schiavoni

Tradition is Venice.
The Carnevale is its tradition.

From the beginning of the Serenissima Republic when Venice was the center of the known world, lots of water has passed under the bridges (literally!).

Venice the beautiful. A small town that thanks to the hard work and creativity of its inhabitants surged at the highest ranks in power and splendor. And thanks to the peculiarity of being "protected by the water" and hard to reach, it has been almost militarily unbeatable for centuries.

Find in this pages flashes of Carnival traditions, of habits that were very well alive back then (from the 12th up to the 19th century) and today are considered just curiosity, but still bear the imprint of a glorious past.

And, anyway, from the way Carnival was, Venetians have to love it so much to keep it going and have fun!
