Feb 26 to Mar8, 2011 - Venice Carnival 2011 celebrating the Unification of Italy and women
Venice discovers in 2011 the vibrant soul of its “theme” Carnival. “Ottocento” the nineteenth century evocation, will outline the Carnival, edition 2011, scheduled from February 19th till March 8th. It will be developed among romantic suggestions and Risorgimento impulses, while wearing its charming redingote and top hats, corsets and crinolines.
For the 150 years since the Unification of Italy, Venice reveals itself with its feminine sensuality calling back to the famous nineteenth century heroines of the post romantic era whom the Carnival is dedicated to, by adding folk and exhilarating elements to the fight between the Austrian soldiers and the members of the Committees for the Unification of Italy.
