A FEW HISTORICAL INFO ABOUT THE CARNIVAL IN VENICE...

Its origins are ancient: the first dates back to a document of the king Falier of 1094, where it speaks of public entertainment and the word Carnival was mentioned for the first time.

 

The Carnival festival was attributed by the Venetian aristocrathic people to the need of the Serenissima Republic, to grant the population, especially to the poor people, a period dedicated entirely for fun, during which the Venetians flocked throughout the city to celebrate with music and dancing.

 

Through the anonymity that masks and costumes guaranteed, a sort of leveling of all social divisions was obtained and even the public derision of the authorities and aristocracy was authorized. These concessions were largely tolerated and considered a providential for the tensions and discontent that inevitably arose within the Republic of Venice, which placed strict limits on its citizens on issues such as common morals and public order.
