I know all over the world we already should be in the season of Lent but, since I’m living in Milan, I found out the Ambrosian Calendar. According to this Calendar, Lent starts 4 days later than in the Roman Rite. It means: no Ash Wednesday! This is why, in Milan, Carnival ends today on Fat Saturday – sabato grasso!
Last saturday – on a very rainy day – we went to Venice to enjoy the Carnival spirit of this weird and charming little town. As I just wrote it rained a lot – all.day.long!
Believe me, Venice is quite magical in sunny days!
