The Venetian Masquerade Masks was an established part of this ancient city of canals by 1436, when the city's mask makers became recognized with their own guild. Originally the carnival of Venice was a yearly celebration of the capture of an invader of this city of canals named Ulrich 11. The beginnings of the tradition of wearing Masquerade Masks For Women as part of the celebration is not clear though the Catholic church played a part in the eventual wearing of the Mask and Masquerade Ball Costumes during the festivities.
The Carnival festivities include elaborate masquerade balls and grand dinners, entertainment in the ground piazza featuring jugglers, acrobats and travelling exhitit of exotic animals and birds. The masks, gowns and activities reached their height in the eighthteenth century.
