The words by the journalist Marco Imarisio are very true: “We can close any borders, but we will always have Venice, which belongs to the world, not to us.”
The Carnival in Venice has been interrupted to avoid any health risks due to the current international situation. Therefore, this Mardi Gras in Venice there will be no traditional parades, which took place until last Sunday.
The downtime period does not prevent artistic companies from planning activities for next month in the capital city of Carnival, and there will be many concert-masquerades in Venice in March 2020:
The Four Seasons by Vivaldi Concert in traditional costumes is going to take place every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday in March at 8:30 pm at the Scuola Grande di San Teodoro. The music programme performed by I Musici Veneziani is going to include an opening with the Symphony in G major by Vivaldi, the Canon by Pachelbel and the Concert for Strings and Harpsichord in G minor by Vivaldi.
The Four Seasons by Vivaldi with Ballet and Dinner is another interesting option available at the Scuola Grande dei Carmini in Venice. The concert in XVIII-century costumes accompanied by the harp is going to take place on March 7th, 21st e 31st at 9:00 pm, while dinner is going to be available at the Lounge Bar Samurai, near the concert hall, from 7:00 pm.
