Venetian Masquerade ball "Il Ballo del Doge: The Greatest Dream" - Venice
The temporal doors of The Greatest Dream are about to open, the imaginative realm of an indefatigable dreamer, Antonia Sautter, the Grande Dame of the Venetian Carnival, who this year invites you to celebrate the 30th edition of her grandest dream-in-progress, Il Ballo del Doge.
On Saturday 18 February 2023, in the majestic setting of the Scuola Grande della Misericordia, the gears of time will go mad with joie de vivre! A carousel of music, lights, characters and emotions awaits you that will trigger your fantasy, imagination and that art of amazement that everyday life sometimes robs us of.
