18 FEBRUARY - Festa delle Marie, The Parade

Posted by carnival on December 1, 2016

 

The traditional ''Festa delle Marie'' will start at San Piero di Castello at 2.30pm, will parade all along Via Garibaldi and Riva degli Schiavoni and it will reach San Marco stage at 4.00 pm, where the twelve “Marias” will be introduced to the crowd waiting for them.

It evokes the homage that the Venetian Doge offered every year to twelve beautiful but humble venetian girls, offering them magnificent jewels as a bridal dowry.

The “Festa delle Marie” is articulated in different days and it is the occasion to admire the traditional venetian period costumes.
