“Vivi i colori”

100_3880 The 2013 edition of the Venice Carnival brings the ancient times to nowadays through a rich program of shows between January 26th and February 12nd. Colours, concerts, masked parades, balls, many theatrical performances and representations are enriching Venice during the Carnival.

Back in time
”Carnem Levare” is the origin of carnival word, a Latin term which means to “eliminate meat from diet” or ”Farewell, meat”. Edges ago (they say it was in 1162 when starts as a tradition) during the Carnival people were characterized by an extraordinary delectation of food, drinks, and sensual pleasures in general. The social order was subverted, and all the usual roles upset. People were hiding their identities behind the masks and all forms of social class were annulled, allowing anyone to pose the behaviors and attitudes of the costume they chose to represent and interpret.
This ecstatic ability to participate incognito in this rite of collective’s disguise was the essence of Carnival and last even today.
Later in the eighteenth century, ” it was Giacomo Casanova’s world, a festive place, both colorful and gallant. It was the world of painters. It’s the native land of Carlo Goldoni, in his literary production represents the spirit of the holidays of Carnival”
They say that during Carnival time business affairs of the Venetians were passing in the background as they conceded a lot of time to celebrate, tell jokes, and enjoy entertainment and shows throughout the city.
These are events that concur among with the architecture, the engineering marvel and make Venice, a place of endless capture.

What we can expect today
The silent water parade – a water parade of parade of traditional boats and gondolas floats along the Canal Grande, lit only with candles.
Mardi Gras Colours Show: Hard Rock Cafe presents REZOPHONIC IN CONCERT –  Famous national and international music starts will create an outstanding music concert to say goodbye, with colours and music, to the Carnival 2013.

  1. Thank you for visiting my blog – I am glad you appreciated this simple flower. It also had some sort of music to it.. as you describe here the many faces of the Festival ; )

      • Thank you. I am not sure I understand very well – in any case, all I did & do is publish posts on WP. If your question is about traffic (is it?), than maybe the “answer” is in the categories and tags you (may/can) assign to your post. Have I answered your question?

      • No, it’s not about traffic, is about community….meaning i did make traffic on your blog but i’m not in your right side of a blog as a member of your community….

      • This is automatically generated.. I would not know how to interfere with the logic of this widget.. We should do something about this! Let me think – I hope I shall come up with something. I could also write WP for help on this. I will try ; ) Thank you!

      • Hello, I can see the contents of the widget changes as they say: “sample” and differs – between the two widgets. There is nothing I can do – so for now I let be twice this widget. Thank you for visiting my blog!!!

      • 3rd reply.. I tried adding this widget once more – now there are 2 widgets, defined the same way, yet each with a different sample.. its a funny world. Its the ‘sample’ rule that matters. I will follow to see how this alters. Best wishes & Many thanks!
