Vicenza can be the perfect destination in Veneto to reach Venice in one day in just 50 minutes by train: our Relais Santa Corona is only a few minutes’ walk from the station. The 2022 “Remenber the future” carnival includes various events in the city until March 1st; it will be a multidimensional event, in which the physicality of the traditional event in presence is integrated with the virtual part, using technology to involve the whole audience of the Carnival, including those who want to participate remotely, from all over the world. The Artistic Direction is by Massimo Checchetto, set designer of the La Fenice Theater.
“Remember the Future” is the title chosen for this edition, and is inspired by a quote from Salvador Dalì: And most of all I remember the future.
“Walking through Venice, although with a specific destination, one is forced to constantly change direction, the calli end in a turning; behind a turning point a surprise, often a wonder, almost always a future. For the theme of this year’s Venice Carnival I thought about our future, that future that this city full of past unleashes in those who live it. Just a place in constant contradiction, where dreams and reality merge ”- declares Massimo Checchetto.
Carnival is a surreal game, beyond logic. Remembering the future seems like a paradox, but precisely this responds to the most authentic spirit of Carnival: a subversion of meaning that allows you to ‘open up’ the mind and open up possible unexpected scenarios. An introspective and creative journey that everyone can undertake to discover the most hidden desires and the most secret aspects of their personality. With the freedom of anonymity, because today, behind a mask, another mask is hidden.
