In this edition: the wonderful world of carnival in Venice, a tour of the French city of Grenoble, a tribute to Wagner by the Mnozil Brass ensemble and an artists who chooses just one subject -- water glasses -- as his main motif.
Venice is in the full swing of carnival. The costumes and masks are a throwback to another era. The more decadent, colorful and ornate, the better. But revelers are dealing with some of the city's heaviest rains. But they're not letting it rain on the parade!
This year marks 200 years since the German composer Richard Wagner was born. The German city of Bayreuth is planning numerous events to mark the occasion, the first being an unconventional work by the Austrian brass ensemble Mnozil Brass.
The French Alpine city of Grenoble draws thousands of visitors every year for its picturesque surroundings and the culture it has on offer. The city boasts numerous museums, festivals and events. And for sports and ski enthusiasts, the mountains are just a stone's throw away.
