Every time I describe a city I am saying something about Venice. – Italo Calvino
The true symbol of the Venetian Carnival, the masks are unique in the world and so much loved for the joy and beauty they offer. It is a centuries old tradition and one of the world’s most famous carnivals. Initially, wearing elaborate masks had the purpose of concealing the own identity during the celebrations and parties when the lower and upper classes mingled together.
