Venice began to celebrate this celebration in century XI, being the most popular celebration in century XVIII, when it lasted from the first Sunday of October until cuaresma began. At this time, the Venetian ones of all social class, were disguised with long black layers, called tabarro, and a white mask, bauta, and began the great celebration, in which the town could interfere in subjects of the aristocracy, and to even make fun of of this. Venice happened to represent a great theater with dances, songs and free love. The time did that this basic clothing, to hide the face and to release to the man, would go away more and more transforming into made disguises and the Venetian masks would acquire the art work category. With the arrival of century XX the carnival went losing, until in 1979 Venice it decided to recover this celebration, with objectives more tourist than festive.
Nowadays, the carnival of Venice lasts twelve days, finishing Tuesday of carnival: in this celebration the City council organizes great parades and dances of disguises, to which all are invited, from the children to more the majors.
