Venetian masks

Venetian masks are a centuries-old tradition of Venice, Italy. The masks are typically worn during the Carnival of Venice, but is used on many other occasions, usually as a device for hiding the wearer's identity and social status. The mask permits the wearer to act more freely in cases where he or she wanted to interact with other members of the society outside the bounds of identity and everyday convention. It was useful for a variety of purposes, some of them illicit or criminal, others just personal, such as romantic encounters.

Venetian masks

Venetian masks are characterised by their ornate design, featuring bright colours such as gold or silver and the use of complex decorations in the baroque style. Many designs of Venetian masks stem from Commedia dell'arte. They can be full-face masks (e.g. the bauta) or eye masks (e.g. the Columbina).
