Trivia Night – A Carnevale Evening in Venice, with Carla Gambescia
Venice, the most enchanting and improbable of cities, has given us many “gifts” such as Mardi Gras, the delicious Bellini cocktail, delectable carpaccio served in fine restaurants – and so much more!
In an engaging question-and-answer virtual session led by award-winning author and cultural expert Carla Gambescia, we will discover little-known backstories of the canal city often called La Serenissima; its opulent, often decadent, and captivating history; and the inventiveness of its residents.
All participants will be entered to win a copy of Carla’s book “La Dolce Vita University: An Unconventional Guide to Italian Culture from A to Z,” a Silver Prize winner of Best Travel Book of the Year. The book is an eclectic compendium of all things Italian and a joyful celebration of why we love Italy and, of course, Venice!
