Venezia - Carnevale 2017 - Venice Carnival 2017

Crowds gathered in Saint Mark's Square in Venice to watch one of the highlights of the Italian city's carnival – The Flight of the Angel. The traditional event sees a beauty pageant winner, dressed in carnival costume, descending from the bell tower of Saint Mark's Basilica. This year's angel, Claudia Marchiori, a 22-year-old student at Venice's Academy of Fine Arts, descended the rope from the Bell Tower, scattering confetti onto the crowds waiting below.
