Welcome to the Venice Carnival

Città di Venezia - logoFirst of all let me explain that this is not the official web site of the Carnival of Venice.

It is just a tribute that I, artist and photographer Roberto Delpiano am offering to this wonderful carnival in the wonderful town of Venice. It has been developed as a present to the internet community, to showcase all the "good and wonderful and fun" the Carnival of Venice can offer to whom is going to participate to it, or just surfs there.

You will find in these website highlights of what's in the historical background of the carnival.

Just to make it clear: the Carnival of Venice is no "goof", no "consumeristic ceremony" as some people may complain, but still - after all its years - a sincere, wonderful heartfelt tradition that goes back in time almost a millennium and, despite its age, still shows its vitality to whom participates to it in person or in spirit.

So please feel the warm feeling of the city of Venice and its Carnival embracing you, and don't forget (if you are going to Venice in person) to give a look to some of these hints before flying there ...

and here we go!
