Poster Print entitled 'Venetian Carnival Masks'. It is said that the Carnival of Venice was started from a victory of the 'Repubblica della Serenissima', Venice's previous name, against the Patriarch of Aquileia, Ulrico in the year 1162. In the honor of this victory, the people started to dance and make reunions in San Marco Square. Apparently, this festival started on that period and become official in the renaissance. The festival declined during the 18th century.Masks have always been a main feature of the Venetian carnival. Traditionally people were allowed to wear them between the festival of Santo Stefano (St. Stephen's Day, December 26) and the start of the carnival season and midnight of Shrove Tuesday.There is very little evidence explaining the motive for the earliest mask wearing in Venice. One scholar argues that covering the face in public was a uniquely Venetian response to one of the most rigid class hierarchies in European history. Multiple sizes available. Primary colors within this image include: Yellow, Peach, Sky Blue, Gray. Made in the USA. All products come with a 365 day workmanship guarantee. Inks used are latex-based and designed to last.
