Venezia header: Piazza San Marco - Riva degli Schiavoni

Welcome to the Venice Carnival

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

It is a tribute that I, artist and photographer Roberto Delpiano am offering to this wonderful Carnival in the wonderful town of Venice.

The information you will find on this website has been researched and developed to showcase all history and fun the Carnival of Venice has offered along the centuries, and can still offer to whom is going to participate to it.

Much detailed research has been done using all the power of the internet and the books written about Carnival and Commedia dell'Arte I have been able to access, with the purpose of representing the most accurate and detailed historical background of both.

I have also had a special care in researching the right images, and with the best quality possible, which "could tell the story".

The Carnival of Venice is still, after all these years - almost a Millennium! - a sincere, wonderful heartfelt tradition that can show its vitality to whom participates to it in person or in spirit.

So please feel the warm embrace of the city of Venice and its Carnival, 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 there we go!
