Recently we learnt that people in Itally like to celebrate Carnevale each year prior to Easter (usually celebrated in February or March and for a 10-day period). It is celebrated in different ways, but in many cities people dress up in fancy dress, some wear masks (the word for mask is ‘maschera’) and some cities have parades with floats and street parties.  We watched a few clips about how Carnevale is celebrated in different cities of Italy.  Venice is the Italian city that is most famous for their elaborate masks and costumes during Carnevale time.

The children in grade prep and one also created their own paper mask to take home – I hope you enjoyed looking at their beautiful creations. Wishing you all a very happy Easter and holiday time. Buona Pasqua!
