Experience Carnival Like a True Venetian

Experience Carnival Like a True Venetian
Renowned their costumes that recreate the elegance of the past ages of Italy’s magical history, this Atelier offers costumes dating back to the 17th century all the way up to the 1920s, and will offer masqueraders the possibility to totally transform themselves for the evening of Carnevale’s gala event.

In addition to costumes, the art of mask making will also be an option as the Bauer has reserved spaces for their guests to take part in a mask-making workshop hosted by Ca’Macana, one of the oldest and famous studios in Venice. These workshops allow participants to create and decorate his or her own papier-mâché mask, by utilizing techniques that have been taught for more than 800 years.

This way guests will have the opportunity to choose the perfect costume and the mask, to wear to Alchemy, a special event that the Bauer will host to launch this year's Carnevale. Alchemy is an evening of mystery, imagination, and grandeur, where international artists will reunite in a magical night with the sole purpose of creating an unforgettable experience. Guests are welcome to attend as magicians, scientists, suns or moons, heads of dragons, crows, a swan or the Golden Phoenix.

Cost for the event: 300 Euro for the Alchemy Evening
When: Saturday, February 6, 8:30pm
