About the Venice Carnevale
The Venice Carnival began in the 15th century, but the tradition can be traced back to the beginning of the 14th Century. Today this congregation of masked people is one of the most internationally known festivals celebrated in the world.
In the squares street-artists and singers entertain with songs and music from their guitars, and the streets of Venice Carnival fill with people in masks, nobility and the common people alike. Generally, the costume worn was a cloak with a long-nosed mask. Also popular were masked couples, dressed as allegorical characters.
