The mascheran + sarte of Venice

The Carnevale in Venice is happening now! This year the festivities began on January 26th and will run until February 12th. The mascheran (mask makers) have been busy constructing mysterious masks, and the sarte (seamstresses) have been busy sewing elaborate costumes. Read more about this history of this annual event on my post from last year here
