The “Flight of the Angel” is a traditional event that goes back to the Serenissima period where an unknown guest of Venice, flying along a rope from San Marco bell tower to the middle of the square, will offer an homage to the Doge, and will be greeted by the crowded parterre of the period costumes parades of the Historical Re-enactments.
As a conclusion, the embrace of the Angel and the Doge will smooth the atmosphere of a square galvanized by scenographical effects always appreciated by the Italian and international networks.

The girl winner of the 2016 edition of the “Festa delle Marie” (Marie contest), Claudia Marchiori, will be the Angel of the new Carnival 2017.

The “Doge” Parade is organized by C.E.R.S. – Consortium of European Re-enactment Societies, with the participation of Ass. Amici del Carnevale di Venezia, Ass. Internazionale per il Carnevale di Venezia and the Historical Group “Le Maschere di Mario del ’700 veneziano”
