|It is said that the Carnival of Venice was started from a victory of the "Serenissima Repubblica" against the Patriarch of Aquileia, Ulrico in the year 1162. In the honour of this victory, the people started to dance and make reunions in San Marco Square. |
The Venetian Carnival was celebrated on “Fat “Thursday, also known as Shrove Thursday (or Berlingaccio for the Venetian). It was the official Carnival day for the Repubblica Serenissima di Venezia. On that day, the Duke, with top government officials and foreign ambassadors, attended scheduled performances from the loggia of the Palazzo Ducale, which dominates the square. In particular we remember the Fireworks, the ' human pyramids ' and the so-called ' Turkish ' Fly, an Acrobat tied on a rope was slowly lifted to the top of the Bell Tower, pretending to be an angel by moving the false wings of his costume. Once he reached the top, he started its slow descent pretending to ' fly '. After his landing, he offered a bouquet of flowers, descended from heaven, to the Duke.
