Masks


Many Venitians spend a small (or not so small) fortune dressing up for Carnavale, costumes, shoes, and masks. Here are a few traditional masks, mainly meant for tourist in search of a cheap (or not so cheap) souvenir.

And then, there is the other way, as seen below…

Which mask would you choose?

  1. I am not much about these things, but the classical ones are more beautiful.

  9. I would choose one of the beautiful decorated masks with the handles, I think – then I would have to buy the proper attire to go with it! A nice photo. It would be good printed and hung on the wall.

  11. That's quite a selection of masks. Not being into those kinds of celebrations, I'd probably not choose any but would find a good place to photograph people wearing them!
