In the magical charm of Venice, the tradition that is still alive in our days
Venetians have worn masks since antiquity as a way for respectable citizens to partake in decadent and scandalous behavior without being recognized. From the 13th century, masks became more ostentatious and flamboyant as part of the celebration of Carnival, when the lower and upper classes could mingle together and role play. The art of mask making is still a respected tradition in Venice today. Learn how the masters sculpt and paint Carnival masks by hand, and make your own mask using the tools of the mask-making workshop.
