Leave your comfort zone and put on a sumptuous period costume, a sartorial expression of the high Venetian craftsmanship of which Antonia Sautter is an exceptional interpreter.
Cross the threshold of absolute creativity and love for beauty; an alternative universe awaits you, inhabited by artists and acrobats, masks, unexpected decor, sumptuous floral arrangements and regal table settings.

Antonia Sautter invites you to take a seat in her world… a world that enhances art, beauty and her love for her city, and which turns pure Venetian style and experience into a transformative act with Renaissance as protagonist.

Follow the footsteps of the Joker around halls, stairways, vaults and pillars… escorted by a Harlequinade parade.

Find yourself in an explosion of joy and confetti to capture and revive your senses.
