Carnevale Quartet, Church of San Felice, This Evening


  1. Oh dear ... "It's that time again". I'm sure the visitors dressing up like that are enjoying themselves greatly ... but I've never really understood why they should want to.

    1. Though in the crowds it's easy to miss such people, some costumed revelers spend much of the year creating and sewing the costumes they wear. Many, and I would guess, most of the elaborately-costumed folks rent theirs.

      I don't worry too much about what they like about it--I'm sure it varies. Many seem to take a certain pleasure in how nicely the architecture of Venice sets off their costumes. I can understand this, but I often approach it from the reverse angle: looking for those costumes that set off the architecture.
