In Italy, this year, we celebrate the Carnival on the 3rd ,4th and 5th of February, just before Lent . On this occasion we put on traditional masks. In our country each region or each city has got a traditional Carnival mask: here are some of them in our drawings.

    Hi this is Aoife(11) and Jenny(11) from Ireland.
    We enjoyed looking at your pictures.
    What age are you?
    You are very creative. Did you enjoy the carnival?
    Our next carnival will be St. Patrick’s Day on the 17th of March.
    We are all looking forward to it.
    St. Patrick brought Christianity to Ireland.

    Very colourful drawings. We like them very much. We don’t have carnivals here so it was nice to find out more about this tradition in your region.

    Our younger children (at school) made masks a couple of weeks ago to mark Chinese New Year. They were of the rat – this year is the Year of the Rat – and they really enjoyed playing Chinese music and performing a dragon dance.
    It reminded me that you also were making masks – of course Italy is well-known for it’s masks, I am of course thinking of the Venice masks. (Venetian)
    Well done Gina.
