Venice Carnival 2012 (till 21 february) – the Wine Fountain

The carnival started off with a grand toast at the Wine Fountain, with masks, costumes and traditional dances. The event was preceded by a concert of the traditional Choir "DoReMi", that played a selection of traditional Venetian songs like the hymn of San Marco, “Venezia, la luna e Tu” and “El Gondolier”, and by the dances of groups of masks in XVIII century costumes (In partnership with "Overdream", "Associazione degli amici del Carnevale", "Associazione Internazionale del Carnevale di Venezia"). The Wine Fountain, realized in partnership with "Enoteca Veneta", will be open to the public every day until 21th February in Piazzetta San Marco: a good chance to taste the best wines of the Veneto region, like Raboso, Garganega, Carmenere, Merlot, Corvina, Prosecco.
