Discover Il Ballo del Doge, the most exclusive masquerade party of the Venice Carnival


The Il Ballo del Doge was born in 1994 from Antonia Sautter’s love for Venetian splendour and from her personal quest for beauty. The idea takes shape when the designer works with Terry Jones, historic member of Monty Python, on a BBC documentary about the Crusades. The International Gala of the Venice Carnival has been, for over twenty years, the greatest of her successes among her numerous activities as a Venetian designer of renown.

The Il Ballo del Doge is an artistic event, a social appointment, an unforgettable experience that unites people from all over the world. A production that goes beyond the notion of a party and becomes an international happening lived by celebrities and by all those of us in search of a dream.

Antonia Sautter is the beating heart of the Il Ballo del Doge, with her visual fantasies of color and sound, her elaborate dreams, her skillfully interpreted emotions that embrace her Guests: the real protagonists of such a splendid night.
The sumptuous costumes she designs and makes, the beautiful masks that conceal the most famous of faces, the performances of international artists, the elegance of the refined decorations studied to the last detail are just some of the emotions the Guest experiments. The creator of Il Ballo del Doge handles every theme with passion, looking at the future without forgetting, rather appraising, the great tradition of the Venetian Carnival.
