FROM JANUARY 25 TO FEBRUARY 5 2008

Carnival of Venice 2008
Sensation | 6 Senses for 6 districts

The format for the Carnival of Venice 2008 already bears the promise of something new and different in the title: Sensation, 6 senses for 6 districts.

We have always used our 5 senses: sight, touch, hearing, taste and smell to discover the world. The world is what we see, touch, hear, taste and smell, but it is also what we imagine: it is above all our 6th sense – it is in our minds. Each district can be discovered through the enhancement and spectacularization of one of the senses, along a path that leads the public to a new dimension of Carnival in which enjoyment is the protagonist. Enjoyment is a genuine element that comes from our perception; from the immediate use of our body and our senses. The senses will be expressed through elements of scenography, performances by theatrical groups and artists, concerts and light design installations.

San Polo will be the district dedicated to sight, Santa Croce to smell, Dorsoduro to touch, Castello to hearing and Cannaregio to taste. St. Mark will be the sensory, imaginative and thinking centre of the City that embraces the mind – a real intersection of all the senses, in all senses. St. Mark will, therefore, be the pulsating centre of everything, a mind place and sensorial mainstay, hosting the main stage on which musical, theatrical and artistic performances will be alternating.  Great events for the new Carnival of Venice 2008. The Carnival of Venice is all about Sensation: for those who want to experience the 6 senses at the most famous Carnival in the world. Come and explore this wonderful City and this territory.
