Creatum civitas ludens

Motto Carnevale 2018

The main focus of the Carnevale di Venezia 2018: Creatum, Civitas Ludens, the Venice Carnival in the spirit of fun and „playing“ will be the topic of the game. Piazza San Marco, for that occasion, will take on the guise of a great circus, one of the most acient forms of spectacle and show filled with amazement, technique and magic, where crafts and roles, ability and fantasy, games and school mix.
Inspired by this tradition the designer of the Teatro La Fenice, Massimo Checchetto, decided to celebrate this year’s theme by choosing some elements from the Italian circus Togni, used also in the film „La Strada“ by the Federico Fellini.
