Venetian Mask Medico Della Peste Quadri Nero Rosso
Although the origin of the costume can be attributed to a 16th century Franciscan doctor, this mask is often combined with the history of Venice, particularly the tragic plague of 1630. Given the great impact of this event on the Venetians, it ofcourse had be included among the masks of the Carnival of Venice; indeed, the carnival almost exorcises its negative connotation related to the plague.
