Fom Rialto to San Marco

The most spectacular way to say goodbye to the Carnival 2103: a water parade of traditional boats and gondolas floats along the Canal Grande, lit only with candels.

Venice was once more mysterious and dark than today. Starting from the concept of a dark and silent city, the event of the “Vogata del silenzio” aims to create an unique moment: a water parade of traditional rowing boats will float along the Grand Canal, from Rialto to San Marco.
The total absence of motor boats will be added to the natural scenography of the facades of the palaces along the Grand Canal lit only by candles, recreating a dreamlike and unique Venice.
When the parade will reach Punta della Dogana, a symbolic goodbye to 2013 edition will take place, with wishes to see everyone back in the 2014 edition of the carnival.
