Behind the mask of Venice Carnival

During the Carnival period, anything can happen….The poor man becomes the king of the festival and the King is relegated to the rank of a simple servant. Behind the masks and make-up there is no longer any prohibition, the rules are forgotten for a few hours or a few days. In Venice, carnival has a privileged history and once upon a time the mask, its favourite attribute, was an everyday object and not only mandatory for participants in festivities. To attend one of these balls organized in the luxurious Venetian palazzi, you will need to plan a complete outfits and our advice will always be to refer to the 17th and 18th centuries, models of refinement and elegance. Costumes of “marquis” and “marquise”, preferably in harmony of colours and style, combined with a wolf worked or plucked in the same shade, powdered wig or tricorn, profusion of jewellery.  For the Masquerade Ball, to avoid disappointment, book your costume in advance. Costumes can be adjusted to your size and are systematically cleaned.
