Since the Middle Age, the Venetians go out in the streets of Venice for the Carnival. In the past, aristocrats and commons people mixed up and, anonymous under their masks, they forgot about their social differences.
Fearing that revolutionaries will hide behind the masks, Napoleon interrupted this tradition in 1797.
In the 1970s students began to renew with the beautiful traditions and started again this festivity. The Carnival of Venice will be reintroduced officially in 1980.
