The Minuet Grand Ball

Martedi Grasso or Fat Tuesday – The Last Dance


Tuesday, February 17, 2015

Gala Dinner & Live Entertainment.



 The Minuet Grand Ball on Mardi Gras, the last night of Carnival, takes place in the piano nobile of Palazzo Ca’ Pesaro Papafava, an authentic 14th Century palace with an exclusive water entrance. Gothic windows overlook the alluring Misericordia canal.

During the gala Shrove Tuesday dinner, only candlelight and classical music illuminate the ancient rooms, whisking guests back to a time of enchantment. The elegant Minuet was the favorite dance of European aristocrats. The masters of dance introduce guests to the Minuet, Gavotte and Jigs, and offer instruction in the ballrooms of the ancient palace.

Join hands and dance the open-chain farandole throughout the palazzo – a perfect way to end Carnival.
