Aperol presents… the 2020 Flight of the Angel!

The “Flight of the Angel” is a traditional event that goes back to the Serenissima period where an unknown guest of Venice, flying along a rope from San Marco bell tower to the middle of the square, will offer an homage to the Doge, and will be greeted by the crowded parterre of the period costumes parades of the Historical Re-enactments.
As a conclusion, the embrace of the Angel and the Doge will smooth the atmosphere of a square galvanized by scenographical effects always appreciated by the Italian and international networks. The girl winner of the 2019 edition of the “Festa delle Marie” (Marie contest), Linda Pani, will be the Angel of the new Carnival 2020.

The “Doge” Parade is organized by C.E.R.S. – Consortium of European Re-enactment Societies, with the participation of Ass. Amici del Carnevale di Venezia, Ass. Internazionale per il Carnevale di Venezia and Ass. Dame e Cavalieri. With the participation of Chiara Luppi and Vittorio Matteucci.

The Angel’s costumed by Atelier Stefano Nicolao
Hairstylist “Monika e Umberto”- Mercerie S. Salvador. Make-up by Francesca Chiozzotto from “Monika e Umberto”.
