The Frittelle alla Veneziana is actually a traditional Venetian carnival dessert since the Renaissance period invented by Scappi, the Pope’s personal cook. Due to its increased popularity, it spread across the state in the 18th century as the “National Dessert”.
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 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.
