Venice Carnival

Venice Carnival

 

JANUARY 26 – FEBRUARY 12, 2013

With 13 days of dressing up, shows, music, games and color to brighten up the dreariness of February, it’s easy to see why Carnevale is the most popular event in Venice.

Huge crowds flock to Saint Mark’s Square and other gathering points for the free shows, parades and concerts. The carnival was brought back to life during the 1970s, with the aim of reviving Venetian history and culture and now attracts more than 30,000 visitors a year. An important feature of the carnival is the wearing of masks. Originally this was a way of hiding identities and achieving equality among the classes. These amazing masks can cover the whole face or just part of it.
