Ball of Louis du Soleil

Start time: 19:00
Place: Palazzo Zenobio
Organizer: García Martín de Calera – Organizzazione Carnevalesca de Calera
At Carnival in Venice, the nocturnal lanes come alive with mystery,
the moon casts reflections on the winding canals,
and we evoke, for you, the opulence of an 18th century ball,
set against the background of the overwhelming original stage!

Le Grand Monarque, Le Roi Soleil has returned from a journey across the Seven Seas and invites you to a magnifcent ball in the splendid halls of the Zenobio Palace, where you will be welcomed as a member of the court. He is bringing back invaluable treasures from foreign lands, amazing delicacies and exquisite wines.

At the entrance of the palace, birds of fire dance along the canal, beyond the heavy doors a harpist plays, and the champagne flows. Fire breathers, musicians, and mystery beckon the guests into the fairy-tale-like garden. At a sign of the master of ceremonies, the invited guests follow him into the sea of lights that is the gilded ballroom.

Celebrated performers and intoxicating cuisine will envelope your senses.
Finally, you will be invited to dance with the court in the lavish setting of the palace!

Let yourself fall into the fantasy that is Venice at Carnival!
Together with an international audience, you will enjoy this
miraculous masquerade ball at the gorgeous Zenobio Palace,
located on the lagoon at the heart of this romantic and mercurial city.
