TRADITIONS

Italian tradition

 

Italian tradition is filled with festivals celebrating saints, holidays and important events in Italian history. In Venice the celebrate Carnivale di Venezia, a two-week party in early spring. It is marked by parties, parades, live performances of music and, most famously, masquerade ball. Masks are worn throughout Carnivale, ranging from simple half-face masks to elaborate full-faced masks called bauta. Although family-friendly events are part of the celebration, the masks and the party atmosphere give Carnivale a reputation as a place where “anything goes.”
