Under the High Patronage of HSH Prince Albert, the magic of Venice will be recreated in Monaco again from February 14 to February 18, 2018.

Reflecting the glamour of the masked ball held at the Rezzonico Palace in Venice in 1967, at which Princess Grace dazzled the world, this second edition will honour the city of Venice, its culture and its traditions, and is designed for those who love glamour, costumes, and a festive carnival atmosphere. Some 70 artists and extras will arrive from Venice for the occasion.

Wednesday, February 14, Valentine’s Day, will mark the beginning of the festivities, while on Saturday, February 17, the sumptuous Grand Masked Ball in period costumes at the Sporting Monte Carlo will undoubtedly be the highlight of the week.

On Sunday, February 18, the public will be invited by the Principality to share Venetian splendour and excitement on the Place du Casino and at the Café de Paris, where flag throwers and artists will perform, and the traditional and delicious hot chocolate of the Café de Paris will be available to all, and offered to children from Monaco’s schools.

The event is being organised by its Founding Director, opera artist and UNICEF Ambassador Delia-Grace Noble, with the support of the Mayor of Monaco, Georges Marsan and the Italian Ambassador in Monaco, HE Cristiano Gallo.
