BLAME THE MOON – WHEN IT GETS TOO CLOSE TO THE EARTH IT MAKES EVERYONE CRAZY | CARNIVAL OF VENICE 

 

Fifty years after the moon landing, the Venice Carnival is inspired by the Moon and, looks up at the infinite sky, at the stars and their seductive myths. A bestiary of legends, myths, heroes and characters between dreams and reality is preparing to invade Venice and the mainland, hiding behind the Shakespearean motto “Blame the moon, when it gets too close to the Earth it makes everyone crazy”.

Because the Moon, with its different phases, has the same principle as the masked figures: it shows itself unveiled, but wears the sunlight’s noble dress, which makes it shine. To us it appears varied and mutable, but it is always its same old self. It is the great actor of the Vault of Heaven, bold and moody, a traitor: when it wants to fascinate us, it blushes. The Moon is the Carnival: with its phases, it is the guide of biological rhythms and reminds us of the passing of time, of birth, adulthood and death. But its death is never final and just like Carnival it returns each time to make us crazy, us poor primitive creatures waiting for the next full moon.

The Carnival, scheduled from February 16 to March 5 on Shrove Tuesday, will allow the public to discover new worlds, spangling with fantasy, with dreamlike and science-fiction journeys and dimensions.
