Venice Carnival - luxurious, enchanting, mysterious…
Mysterious ladies in luxurious dresses and lace half masks, gentlemen in bouts, processions and parades, street performances and music… Preparing for the main celebration in their hometown, the inhabitants of Venice carefully and for a long time choose their costumes. The main attribute of the Venice Carnival has always been and remains masks. However, this is not just an accessory covering the face, but a whole work of art. Venetian masks are distinguished by great sophistication and craftsmanship. The secrets of their manufacture were passed down from generation to generation, preserving the main traditions and absorbing the trends of our time. Masks are made from special types of gypsum, papier-mâché, paints, fabrics, foils, and various decorative materials. Decorating and coloring a real Venetian mask is painstaking handwork. For this, masters use both simple and very valuable components - soil, gold leaf, natural bird feathers and precious stones.
