A little history of this famous carnival
The starting point of this journey takes us long back in history.
The Venice Carnival was held for the first time in the 11th century, and it did quickly became a famous symbol of the floating city.
It was stopped in the 18th century but brought to life again in 1979.
Today, probably everyone in the world has heard about the event.
It launched Venice even higher on the list of must-see destinations in Italy and Europe, if not the world.
Earlier, the carnival always began with balls held at St Mark’s Square and followed with the fun found in the whole city.
People of certain social statuses wore masks and costumes.
Many of them were connected to the famous Commedie del’Arte or Columbine.
Well, it’s still like that and even better.
