Carnival 2022, or more precisely … Carnival at the time of COVID.
Covid continues to change our habits, but certainly not the desire to celebrate. And, so, we are left with a calendar of events spread over 4 months. From February, up to the summer.
There are those who have thrown in the towel (Ivrea). Those who have decided to focus on safety while keeping the program unchanged. Who, like the organizers of the Venice Carnival, has revisited the festival with a softer program.
And, then, there are sacred monsters (Rio de Janeiro or Santa Cruz de Tenerife) who have simply postponed the celebrations.
Here is the updated calendar of some of the most important celebrations of Carnival 2022.
Rio, Cadiz and Santa Cruz de Tenerife represent, from our point of view, the places where the Carnival finds its maximum expression.
