DRESS CODE: period costume  


Love thrives on atmospheres, as music, dancing together, and the sweet taste of chocolate. On the day dedicated to lovers we have created, together with our artists and our partners, a sweet and dancing event held in the Ridotto Hall of the historic Palazzo Dandolo near St. Mark Square, today part of the hotel Monaco, where the guests will enjoy hot chocolate and Venetian carnival sweets in a FESTIVE ATMOSPHERE.


A baroque ensemble will accompany the Dance Master and his partner during their DANCE LESSON. The guests will learn the basic steps of period dances and they will be able to replicate them easily. It's not necessary to come with a partner nor to know how to dance. Venue max capacity: 60 people.

Program and cast

Hotel Monaco

Dandolo Palace, Ridotto Main Hall


The palace of the noble Dandolo was the first place to accomodate the "Ridotto", public gaming rooms from 1638 till 1774. It used to be open during Carnival, which lasted several months, and during that time Giacomo Casanova considered the Ridotto as the stage setting and backdrop for his conquests.
