    What was group at Italy that dressed in masks & gowns and floated silently around?

    Last year we visited the Italian pavillion at Epcot and saw these incredibly beautiful performers. They were dressed in ornate gowns, wore Venetian masks and appeared to float above the courtyard. (Actually on unicycle type contraptions that were totally silent and hidden under their long skirts). I have been searching the internet trying to find the name of this unique performance art, but am having no luck. Does anyone remember this, or know what it's called?

    There is a group called Character Masquerade listed as performers in Italy on Allearsnet.com. They don't mention unicycles, but they have a photo here: http://www.allearsnet.com/tp/ep/ep_masq.jpg

    Do they look familiar?

    scroll dowm towards the bottom for some of my pics.

    If this is not them--there are ladies that perform with large skirts and they walk out of them halfway through their performance. I will post pics later of them. There is one guy that plays a keyboard--one is dressed in red, purple, white -- I have to find them--check back in a couple of days.
