Pane e Carnevale
The window of a panetteria in Castello celebrates the beginning of Carnevale.
I have to admit that at first sight it made me think more of the old cult film The Wicker Man than Carnevale. Then I was struck by the resemblance of the center-most rear mask to James Joyce. I don't think either of these things were what the bakers intended but I admire them for these effects anyway...
