The Venetian Mask Ball is an annual event that celebrates the festivities reminiscent of the Venetian Carnivale that is celebrated all over world and particularly in Venice. Going on its 7th year, please join us on May 20.
The Venetian Carnival has ancient origins and its roots dates back in the Latin feast of Saturnalia and the Greek feast of Dionysian cults celebrating the start of spring. Although they can be traced back to pagan times, it is said that the Carnival of Venice was started from a victory of the “Serenissima Repubblica or better known as the Most Serene Republic of Venice ” against the Patriarch of Aquileia, Ulrico di Treven in the year 1162. In honor of this victory, the people started to dance and gather in San Marco Square. Venetian masks have always been a central feature of the Venetian carnival and has a long history of protecting their wearer’s identity during promiscuous or decadent activities. Made for centuries in Venice, these distinctive masks were formed from papier-mache and wildly decorated with fur, gems, fabric, or ribbons.
