The Venice Carnival is one of Italy’s most popular and glamorous events. People from all over the world flock to this magical city to join in the masked celebrations, dressing up in elaborate costumes and adorning themselves with special carnival masks. Here at Just Posh Masks, we have an enormous selection for you to choose from.
During the Venice carnival, the streets are filled with throngs of masked party goers during frantic merrymaking that lasts from Boxing Day right through until Shrove Tuesday. The concept behind carnival masks dates back to the 13th Century, where a strict class hierarchy and the stigma surrounding indulgence in a number of vices meant that anonymity was highly prized. Nowadays, carnival masks fulfil a much more benevolent function - allowing people to showcase their creativity and flair in a celebratory setting.
If you’re planning a trip to Venice during carnival season, you will definitely be interested in our selection of genuine venetian carnival masks. Whether you’re looking to don a Venetian stock character mask like Il Capitano with his beak-like nose, play the role of the Jester or go all out with a full-faced Bauta mask, long black cape and tricorn hat.
