SUMMARY OF THE EVENT


1) How did Venetians celebrate Carnival?
By showing historical images, we will explain the lost traditions of the Venetian Carnival and their high social relevance and political meaning.
We will talk thoroughly about Giovedì Grasso (Fat Thursday), which truly captures the full essence of Venetian Carnival.

2) How do you make a traditional Venetian mask?
We will show you the traditional mask-making technique and various decoration styles.
You will have seen the complete and complicated mask-making process.

3) When and why Venetian masks were used?
By showing paintings and old prints from the past, we will introduce you to the historical facts about the most characteristic (and unknown) masks of the ancient Carnival at the time of "La Serenissima". You will travel back through time to find out about this unique Venetian lifestyle when masks were used daily during and far beyond Carnival time.
