Let us revel in each other’s company, delight in each other’s creativity.
|This was Venice, the flattering and suspect beauty – this city, half fairy tale and half tourist trap, in whose insalubrious air the arts once rankly and voluptuously blossomed, where composers have been inspired to lulling tones of somniferous eroticism.
—Thomas Mann, Death in Venice
An Afternoon at Caffe Florian Venetian Carnevale in Oakland!
Saturday, February 11, 2017, 2-6pm
Carnevale in Venice is a two-week festival of glamorous balls, a sumptuous strolling masquerade, an international celebration of creativity. The day it begans this year, on February 11th, Caffé Florian in Piazza San Marco was the place to see and be seen! Friends greeted one other joyfully in many languages, kissing each other on both cheeks in the European style.
Thank you to all who came!
See photo albums here and here.
