Carnival 2010 - Spirits of the past, a gathering of souls among potions, manuscripts and...magic

Carnival 2010 - Spirits of the past, a gathering of souls among potions, manuscripts and...magicThroughout many centuries, several famous characters have stayed at the Metropole, such as T.Mann, M. Proust, S. Freud. Historical spirits that have crossed its lounges and its rooms since unmemorable time.
Ghosts of the past, yet they are coming again to life to celebrate a special evening on Friday 12nd February at 7 p.m.

Whispering souls, voices and sounds in the silence, shadows that pass you by undisturbed: a party with ancient nobles as protagonists, dames and duchesses as if coming down from hanged old paintings, but also famous writers, artists and scientists of distant times. Or else angelic ghosts that wander through wide and abandoned lounges, with old musical instruments, hourglasses, iron chandeliers, thrones, stills, candles, old manuscripts as well as weird ingredients for magic potions.

Soft light all around spotted by webs, pale-faced characters who softly brushes by the guests. A merry-lugubrious party of souls from the past looking  for magic recipes, a gathering of illustrious minds returning from ages of Revolutions, conquests and inventions. It will be simply amazing to admire the thousand details that, like in a movie set, will create a breathtaking atmosphere, a joyful night and an irresistible will to have fun.

The gorgeous dinner by Chef Corrado Fasolato recently awarded with the Tre Forchette (Top Score) by Gambero Rosso Guide and above all with the second Michelin Star will be the final touch for a splendid evening. He will play with shapes and flavors to amaze your taste and thrill your senses.
