The hall of the Ridotto has an extraordinary rich history. It was the first place in Venice and in the world to accomodate gambling rooms openly. The young Casanova danced here and used this breath-taking place as a set for his conquests. After the second world war this space becomes the first dancing hall in Venice and after that an important theatre. Nowadays, the Ridotto Hall where the Carnival Ball will take place belongs to the Hotel Monaco & Grand Canal Hotel and gives you a stunning view on the Grand Canal.
