Venice Carnival 2014: Wonder and Fantasy Nature

From 22nd February to 4th March 2014

Re-launched two decades ago, the Carnival was immediately regarded both in Italy and abroad as an event not to be missed. The title and content themes 2014 edition of the Carnival is “Wonder and Fantasy Nature!”

A fairy-tale and fantasy Carnival. A Carnival of fantasy and nature.

This year’s Carnival is globalised because, from its origins, each culture has drawn from its heritage of fantasy and fairy tales as a narrative metaphor of life.

This year’s is a modern Carnival because fairy tales and nature are the festive expression of deep themes linked to the relationship between humankind and the environment: the woods, the valleys, the seas, the mountains, the lagoons and the mysterious animal and vegetable creatures inhabiting them.

Humankind has always felt the need to narrate the mystery of nature through fairy tales. Global cultures, first in the shape of myths, then in an anthropomorphic shape in the world fairy-tale tradition, deploy an endless wealth of symbols and characters to describe the creation and the origin of life, the atmospheric elements, vegetable beings and animal creatures
