Romania, official guest of the carnival in Venice

Starting this year the Carnival in Venice will invite a nation to display its culture. It sounds very nice and it will certainly add more appeal to the festivities that are already very popular.

One of the very pleasant surprises of the carnival was when I found out that Romania was the first nation to be invited to the Venice carnival. This poster actually advertises only the Romanian events of the carnival, spanning across the whole period of the carnival. I heard that in total there were around 200 artists taking part in the artistic events.
During my short 12h stay in Venice I wasn't able to attend any but I'm sure they stood up to the height of the festival :)

Looking forward to seeing Italy as an official guest of the medieval festival in Sighisoara, for instance :)
