In one week Venice will be the stage of the most popular events of the year, the Carnival, which will take place from February 16 to March 5 2019. It is one of the biggest, most festive and colorful celebrations in Italy. The word Carnevale may come from the Latin words carne and vale, meaning “farewell to meat”. In fact, during the 40 days of Lent, it was forbidden to offer parties or eat meat, goodies, sugar, etc. As a consequence, people were used to having parties and get rid of all the rich foods and drinks which were banned during Lent.
