No special words of introduction needed. Now already a traditional family trip to Carnevale in Venice, a synonym for Venetian culture, when streets are filled with beautiful costumes, masks, joy and celebration.
Carnival itself has quite an interesting origin. Dating back to 13th century, it was the only time when lower and upper classes of Venetians socialized together, held celebration and parties, but wore masks to hide their true identities. During this time, people were able to play out their fantasies, indulging in “non-daily” activities like gambling, secret love affairs, and even political assassinations.
So put on your dancing shoes and dance your troubles away.
