The exclusive party of the Carnival of Venice: Il Ballo del doge

The “Ballo del Doge” was first staged in 1994. It takes place every year during the Carnival of Venice and each edition is dedicated to a new theme. Its creator, Antonia Sautter, is a stylist and organizer of exclusive events.

The international media defines this masked ball as:

“the most dazzling, most refined and most exclusive event in the world”

And it sure is! Get ready to enter the most luxurious party of Venice, and be one of the lucky guests of the famous Antonia Sautter’s venetian carnival party! Expect the highest level of entertainment !

A unique venue: La Scuola Grande della Misericordia

This year, the event won’t take place at Palazzo Pisani Moretta. Instead, you will discover the majestic Scuola Grande della Misericordia. Located in the Cannaregio district, this palace dominates the north side of Venice.

This unique building, designed by Jacopo Sansovino, remains an unfinished work (note the lack of cladding on the facades). The interior, however, reflects the grandeur of the investment. The first floor hall is divided into three naves; the chapter house was built in the 1580s and housed works, now lost, by Veronese, Padovanino and Tintoretto.

Today it is privately owned and a recent grand restoration has returned it to the city and the public. It is an amazing and well renowned venue for the most refined events!

The Doge’s Ball Venice: program of the event

You will immediately be immersed in a fantastic world of luxurious decorations and designs created according to the theme of the year.

Throughout the year, Antonia and her 25 collaborators strive to make the event sparkle. Artistic decorations by over 100 professional artists, fine food and drink, music and dancing fill the evening until late.

This is an all-inclusive carnival ball: each ticket category includes:

  • Opening Ceremony
  • Gala Dinner
  • Great Doges Ball Show
  • Open bar

As in all masked balls, a dress code is imposed. Period costumes can be rented directly from the host. She has more than 1,500 unique costumes, handmade with passion, in her workshop.

For the 2022 edition, the theme has still not been revealed and it’s a real nail-biter! Together with the program of the evening, it will be revealed soon and we can’t wait to share it with you!

To give you an idea, here is the video of the best moments of the 2020 Doges Ball:

    Sales Conditions

    Once a reservation is confirmed, there will be no refunds. Due to the high number of requests for the event in question, we are forced to establish very strict cancellation policies, with no refunds in case of cancellation.

    In case of cancellation of the event by us (for COVID reasons), 90% of the ticket will be refunded or a voucher of EQUAL AMOUNT valid for one year will be issued. The organizer will not be held responsible for any damage or financial loss related to the organization of the participants’ stay.

    Any other reason for cancellation (inability to travel to the country/region of origin) will not be recognized. We therefore recommend that a private insurance policy be taken out at the client’s expense.
