The magic of carnival gives to Venice an enchanted atmosphere. Masked people fill the streets with smiles and laughter, and several events are organized all around the city. The carnival usually lasts a couple of weeks, but the most important days are those between the last Thursday and the very last day, Tuesday. Since the wearer was unable to speak, this mask was also called moretta muta, meaning mute. Two masked costumes in St. Mark's square Courtesy of Ester Bonadonna.

This is a very nice book full of history, interesting reading and photos. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I was generally disppointed with the photos. Although there are many beautiful color and black and white photos, I really believe that the photos overall could have been better-quality. There are too many very small,inch-square, black and white photos which should have been large photos, and in color in order to show detail of the masks and costumes. Why the author would choose to put in small, black and white photos at all in a book like this is incomprehensible to me. And I would have liked to see more photos of elegant 18th century costuming, in particular - more women's costumes - as opposed to the strange fantasy-like costumes shown in the majority of the photos. Also, there were one or two very large color photos which had a blurred-special effect, which seemed like a waste of space and so inappropriate for a book like this. I would imagine that a reader would be more interested in seeing clear imagery showing the uniqueness of Venice's masks and costumes. The book's historical accounts were very well presented; overall a good book and worth buying.

Wonderful book. Great pictures in a surreal photographic style. Sought books on Venetian Carnival for research into my own writing and of the three that I purchased this one is definitely my favorite. Very nice text to accompany the pictures.
