Explore the traditional costumes with a real artisan and a professional photographer.
The legendary Carnival springs from the Serenissima’s desire for an event where people of every class, from humble to high, had a chance to enjoy themselves with dancing and music. The anonymity of the masks and costumes turned the social hierarchies on their head.
The tradition was maintained each year to enable the trade in costumes and masks, made by a nascent professional group, the mascareri.
Pearls, feathers and colourful fabrics were and remain defining traits of the typical Venetian garb. And you can select and wear a costume for yourself in this unique experience, guided by our expert artisan, while a professional photographer immortalises the moment out and about amid the Venetian calli. The craftspeople from Atelier La Bauta make their masks and costumes by hand, following the Venetian tradition.
It’s a journey through time back to Renaissance Venice, where you can experience the special feeling of being right there at the most elegant carnival in the world.
