History and teachings
The Carnival of Venice (Italian: Carnevale di Venezia) is an annual festival held in Venice, Italy. The carnival ends with the Christian celebration of Lent, forty days before Easter, on Shrove Tuesday (Martedì Grasso or Mardi Gras), the day before Ash Wednesday. The festival is world-famous for its elaborate masks.
Carnival is a Western Christian festive season and it is also a manifestation of European folk culture.
The Venice Carnival, that since the 1400s gave birth to the Italian tradition of wearing masks, has been an inspiration in Greek theater and Commedia dell’arte for centuries.
