The Arlecchino Grand Ball and Commedia Dell’Arte.

Gala Dinner and Entertainment.

The Ball will be located in the authentic Venice, in a 14th century Palace, Palazzo Pesaro Papafava, with its precious gothic facade & its elegant quadriform gothic windows overlooking the canal of the Misericordia. The palace will be illuminated entirely with candlelights to create a memorable atmosphere.

The city of Venice has an ancient tradition of familiarity with masks, stronger than in any other city in the world. Masks still play a significant role in the city life; they seem to embody the subtle game between illusion and reality that shapes the mysterious identity of Venice.

Arlecchino, the famous character from Bergamo tradition, belongs to the Commedia dell’Arte and is considered the most popular of all its characters. He embodies the soul of the peasant, a primitive naïve and simple character, often a fool and a dullard. The character appears on stage at the same period that acrobats tour the Italian squares and fairs since the Middle Ages.

Tonight Arlecchino introduces a famose magicien to anuse and entertein all the guest with his magical performance and other surprises.
