Venice Carnival 2015 offers a rich programme of events from January 31st to February 17th. All the museums, theaters, churches and foundations will be involved.
On the occasion of Venice Carnival 2015 the most important venetian museums, theaters, churches and foundations
are involved in a rich programme of events, proposing special shows, itineraries
and other offers. All the events are connected by the main theme of food
in relationship with the venetian culture
and art, the music and theater.
In particular, from January 31st to February 17th the Civic Museums of Venice Foundation
proposes a new themed itinerary
about food and an interesting marathon of music and theatre
on February 12th – the so-called Fat Thursday.
During the carnival period, they present an original themed itinerary through a rich selection of works closely related to the iconography of food, in order to highlight the connection between food and culture in the artistic traditions of Venice
. The project reflects also the main theme of Expo 2015
“Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life”.
In the museums (from the Natural History Museum
to Ca’ Rezzonico
, Palazzo Mocenigo
and Ca' Pesaro
) some information sheets will offer you a suggestive interpretation of the artworks displayed in the itinerary. They compare some different aspects – artistic, historical, naturalistic and the anthropological one – in order to reveal in an original way the world and the relevance of food in the venetian tradition.
The marathon on Thursday 12th of February
On the occasion of the “Fat Thursday
” (giovedì grasso) Palazzo Ducale, Correr Museum, Ca’ Rezzonico, Palazzo Mocenigo
and the house museum of Goldoni
are involved in a kind of marathon of music and theater during which several artistic groups will present some short perfomances (about 20 minutes) just in front of the most significant works of each collection. The shows will be proposed more times during the day (every half an hour from 11am to 4.30).
The activities proposed on February 12th are organised in collaboration with the Conservatorio Benedetto Marcello of Venice
, which will present the two performances at Palazzo Ducale and Correr Museum. For the theater, the shows will be proposed by Pantakin – Commedia Circo Teatro Eventi
(Palazzo Ducale and Ca’ Rezzonico), by Kairós – Il tempo giusto Danza e Teatro
(Ca’ Rezzonico and house museum Goldoni) and by Arte-Mide
During the day the Educational Service MUVE will also propose some activities and creative workshops for all the children in Palazzo Ducale and Ca’ Rezzonico (at 3pm and 4pm).
