The exciting flight of the Carnival Angel officially opens the Carnival celebrations in St Mark’s Square. Welcomed into the crowded parterre by the costumed historical re-enactment groups, she will release the tension of the flight in the embrace of the Doge and the public, electrified by the scenographic spectacle that always celebrates the Carnival of Venice, even on national and international networks
As has become tradition, it will be the 2019 Carnival winner Linda Pani who will take on the role of the new Angel.
The event will be preceded by the Doge’s Procession organised by the C.E.R.S. – Consorzio Europeo Rievocazioni Storiche, with the participation of the Ass. Internazionale per il Carnevale di Venezia, Ass. Amici del Carnevale di Venezia, the Gruppo Storico “Le Maschere di Mario del ‘700 Veneziano” and the Associazione ASD, Gruppo Dame e Cavalieri. With the exceptional participation of Chiara Luppi and Vittorio Matteucci.
