Venetian Carnival - a luxurious, enchanting, mysterious...
Mysterious ladies in luxurious attire and lace half masks, gentlemen in Bautes, processions and parades, street performances and music... In preparation for the main celebration in their hometown, the people of Venice carefully and for a long time choose their costumes. The main attribute of the Venice Carnival has always been and remains a mask. However, it is not just an accessory that covers the face, but a whole work of art. Venetian masks are distinguished by great sophistication and craftsmanship. The secrets of their manufacture were handed down from generation to generation, preserving the main traditions and absorbing the trends of modernity. Masks are made of special types of gypsum, papier-mâché, paints, fabrics, foil, various decorative materials. Decorating and coloring a real Venetian mask is a painstaking handmade work.
