The Venice Carnival (Carnevale) is not a
very serious affair. It's a party that
consumes the whole of Venice for about
two weeks before Lent. From the
earliest times (apparently it started in
1162) it was a dance- and
licencious-pleasure-festival, the use of
masks coming in somewhat later. But
it's now the masks that make the
Carnival such a visual treat, and the
costumes that go with them, so much
so that the best mask in any year is judged for a prestigious award. Basically, the
Venetians and many of the visitors become a parade of poseurs who are very skilled
at holding a pose for the thousands of photographers that want to compile their own
Venice Carnivale book. And why not? - the temptation is there and it's irresistable:
three sisters in chicken masks, Casanova in a plague mask and cloak, top-to-toe
Harlequins, the Borgias... The photo-ops are limited only by the imagination and the
sewing skills of the Venetians - all you have to do is point the camera and shoot!
