The carnival of Venice (or Carnevale di Venezia in Italian) was first recorded in 1268.
Masks have always been a central feature of the Venetian carnival; traditionally people were allowed to wear them between the festival of Santo Stefano (St. Stephen's Day, December 26) at the start of the carnival season and midnight of Shrove Tuesday.

El carnaval de Venecia surge a partir de la tradición del siglo XVII, en donde la nobleza se disfrazaba para salir a mezclarse con el pueblo. Desde entonces las máscaras son el elemento más importante del carnaval.

El carnaval de Venecia tiene una duración de 10 días. Durante las noches, se realizan bailes en salones y las comparsas conocidas como compagnie della calza realizan desfiles por la ciudad.
Music:O Fortuna -Carmina Burana( Carl Orff )
