Venice @ 1600 Celebrations

La Fenice returns to Piazza S. Marco to celebrate founding of Venice – September 8, 2020

On 25 March 2021, Venice will celebrate its founding in the year 421. Happy 1600th Birthday to the Most Serene City!

Although this exact birth date (at the stroke of noon no less) is almost certainly apocryphal, there is no doubt that people have been inhabiting the islands in the Venetian lagoons for something close to two millennia.
