History of Venetian mask
The wearing of masks in theatres dates back as far as the ancient Greek festivals in honor of Dionysius, god of theatre. When the Romans conquered Southern Europe, they adjusted the Grecian love of theatre and the use of masks in plays and celebrations.
In 1436, the masters of the Guild of Decorators in Venice re-organized the mask making industry by proposing a certain number of rules.
The Venice Carnival, which dates back to the 15th century, is still famous today, attracting tourists from all around the world to the color and excitement of this ancient tradition. Commedia dell'Arte was a form of improvisational theater, which began in the 16th century and was famous until the 18th century, although it is still performed today.
