Immersed in the elegant atmosphere of a historic Venetian residence - Palazzo Contarini della Porta di Ferro – the Ball of Dreams party in Venice promises to be one of the most anticipated events for Venice Carnival 2019! 

After a meticulous restoration, Palazzo Contarini in Venice, Italy has become an exclusive hotel with suites and apartments. The environments are modelled after the atmosphere of the Golden Age of Venice with old fireplaces, mirrors, tapestries, paintings and prints, precious carpets, Murano glass chandeliers and antique furniture. Every detail of the renewed construction of Palazzo Contarini della Porta di Ferro has been carefully thought of and infuses a timeless elegance into the building, where tradition and modernity coexist in perfect harmony. 

Palazzo Contarini della Porta di Ferro, Castello 2926, Venice - a short distance from St Mark’s Square - lends itself to a perfect location for the parties and events of the Venetian Carnival! In addition to the Casanova Cocktail Party, the building also houses …this important ball dedicated to the most talked-about and intriguing characters of past centuries... An unmissable event to live a daydream! 

The evening will start with a tantalizing welcome cocktail and then continue in the magnificent hall of the Palazzo Contarini Porta di Ferro, unique because it has an attractive terrace overlooking the courtyard and garden of the building. 

During the gala dinner you will be entertained by actors of the Commedia dell'Arte, fortune tellers and dancing masters; musicians in period costume will play melodies and ballads of the Carnivals of the 16th century. 

After dinner, the Ball of Dreams will end in the lobby of the ground floor, with dancing, music and a DJ until the small hours! 

To participate in this exclusive event, Historical costume and mask are required. Don't you have them? No problem! The 'Dream package' includes the costume that you can choose and try at the Atelier Sogno Veneziano, where you will also find many masks to rent at a really advantageous price!
