The Carnival Of Venice
Discover the fascinating world of the Carnival of Venice through a privately guided visit of the Ca’Rezzonico museum and an exclusive fun-filled mask hands-on workshop.
The Carnival Of Venice takes place at the end of February each year, and it is one of the most well known traditions of Venice.
Our Carnival Of Venice activity lets you discover the meaning, traditions and codes behind this festive event, even if you are in Venice during it.The activity is divided into two steps.
Before enjoying making your own carnival mask, meet our fully licensed guide at the Ca Rezzonico museum in order to understand everything there is to know about the tradition. What, what, where and simply why was carnival celebrated here? This engaging introduction, in a museum dedicated to 18th century Venice, will help you better understand the tradition and origins of the Carnival. Don’t forget to take a look at the paintings and spot the different masks.
After this 45 minute introductory class, and now that you know the explanation behind each type of mask, let our guide lead you to one of the best mask making workshops in the city. After meeting your private art teacher and getting a brief introduction on the art of mask making, simply choose your plain paper-maché mask and start decorating it with colors, glitter, sparkles and feathers. By the end of the 2 hours, each member of your family will leave with his/her own personal carnival mask.
Thanks to this complete cultural and hands-on experience, the Carnival of Venice won’t have any secrets anymore!
