Due to the high number of complaints by tourists who visit Venice and take part in a traditional gondola ride across the numerous canals, the felze part of the boat with the Venetian shutter blinds was removed.
The windows of the gondola are usually closed with shutters in order to protect the passengers from the sun and/or rain. These Venetian blinds are not seen in any gondola in Venice though because they blocked the view.
The Carnevale di Venezia is renowned for its unique and creative masks that are worn on the streets for the 13 days of the event, along with the elaborate costumes.
The best part of the Carnival of Venice in Italy is the thrilling and lively atmosphere of the festival filled with unique and innovative Venetian masks and costumes!
People would wear Venetian masks year-round in the city of Venice as there were so many festivals held there!
