Carnival of Venice

Carnival of Venice
Carnival of Venice by Tess Buckler© featuring a bow necklace

As a young-kid out of college, had the good fortune to live in New Orleans where I experienced the pageantry and magic of her Mardi Gras first hand. Also went around to several of the different N.O. Parish Mardi Gras Celebrations... each with their own unique style and flavor. It's on my Bucket-list to attend Carnivale in Rio de Janeiro and Venice...each historically & stylistically unique….all celebrating the end of the 40 day Lenten Season, with fervor and flair. Venetian Carnivale history can be traced back to 1300's; and has been banned at different times throughout the city-state's history. Once when Venice became part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and some Venetian traditions where banned; was banned again by the Fascist Party in the 1930's. Carnevale di Venezia experienced a reneaisannce in 1979; has since grown into an international festival. The modern Venetian Carnivale continues the historical costume tradition of La Bauta (full facial mask) whose origin was to intermix the classes and to protect the wearer; and costume designs from the 1300’s. Elborate pagentary worthy of La sua Venezia graziosa!!
