In a city with such a rigid social system, Carnival fever conferred many cherished freedoms. The most important was anonymity. For some weeks of the year, anyone could be who they wanted to be, whether it was a peasant mixing with aristocrats at their masked balls, a man dressing as a woman in the costume of a Gnaga, or Casanova, the son of lowly actors, pretending to be a state official to.

My Plans. Open menu Menu. Europe Italy Venice. The Carnevale di Venezia is one of the most famous carnivals around the world, and a charming characteristic of the city.
Its origins are centuries old, and it still attracts thousands of tourists each year who arrive in Venice to admire the sumptuous costumes and masks parading in the streets and squares.
V enetian Mask s have always been a central feature of the Venetian Carnival. Traditionally people were allowed to wear masks between the festival of Santo Stefano St.
Stephen's Day, December 26 at the start of the carnival season and midnight of Shrove Tuesday. As masks were also allowed during Ascension and from October 5 to Christmas, people could spend a large proportion of the year in disguise.
Unfortunately, some individuals took illegal advantage of being unrecognizable to perform acts of violence, theft and prostitution. It is said it was designed for an actress because she did not wish to have her beautiful face covered completely.
In fact, the Colombina is entirely a modern creation. There are no historic paintings depicting its use on the stage or in social life.
While both men and women now wear this mask, it began as a woman's analog to the bauta. The Medico della peste , with its long beak, is one of the most bizarre and recognizable of the Venetian masks, though it did not start out as carnival mask at all but as a method of preventing the spread of disease.
The striking design originates from 17th-century French physician Charles de Lorme who adopted the mask together with other sanitary precautions while treating plague victims.
Its use as a carnival mask is entirely a modern convention, and today these masks are often much more decorative. Although the mask and costume is worn almost exclusively by males, the enhancement in decoration also suggests that women are now more likely to wear the mask and costume than in previous years at the Carnival.
The plague doctors who followed De Lorme's example wore the usual black hat and long black cloak as well as the mask, white gloves and a staff so as to be able to move patients without having to come into physical contact with them.
They hoped these precautions would prevent them contracting the disease. The mask was originally beaked with a purpose in congruence with the miasmatic theory of disease practiced at that time: the hollow beak allowed for the containment of flowers and other sweet-smelling substances designed to keep away the foul odors that were thought to spread infection.
Those who wear the plague doctor mask often also wear the associated clothing of the plague doctor.
The popularity of the Medico della peste among carnival celebrants can be seen as a memento mori. The moretta meaning dark one or servetta muta meaning mute servant woman was a small strapless black velvet oval mask with wide eyeholes and no lips or mouth worn by patrician women.
It derived from the visard mask invented in France in the sixteenth century, but differed in not having a hole to speak through.
The mask was only just large enough to conceal a woman's identity and was held in place by the wearer biting on a button or bit the women wearing this mask were unable to speak, hence muta and was often finished off with a veil.
The Rhinoceros by Pietro Longhi , sometimes called Clara the rhinoceros , depicts this mask in use in It fell into disuse about The volto Italian for face or larva meaning ghost in Latin is the iconic modern Venetian mask: it is often made of stark white porcelain or thick plastic, though also frequently gilded and decorated, and is commonly worn with a tricorn and cloak.
The "volto" is also quite heavier than a typical mask and has a much tighter fit; many people who experience claustrophobia do not wear the "volto" at the Carnival.
If worn by a woman, who are the most common wearers of the volto at the modern festival, it is typically worn with a headdress, scarf, veil, another mask, or a combination of all four.
It is secured in the back with a ribbon. Unlike the moretta muta , the volto covers the entire face of the wearer including the whole of the chin.
Unlike a typical mask, it also extends farther back to just before the ears and upwards to the top of the forehead; also unlike the moretta muta , it depicts the nose and lips in simple facial expressions.
Unlike the bauta , the volto cannot be worn while eating and drinking because the coverage of the chin and cheeks is too complete and tight although the jaw on some original commedia masks was hinged, this is not a commedia mask and so is never hinged—the lips are always sealed.
