Carnival of Venice

The Carnival of Venice is one of the oldest and most appreciated carnivals in the world, it is thought that its origins date back to 1094. In the past, this event lasted a whole month and started from the oligarchy of the city of Venice and the need, especially of the most humble social classes, to have a period to devote solely to leisure and fun. The typical Venetian carnival was in fact used to cancel any form of personal belonging to social classes, sex, and religion in order to immerse yourself in a new personality and have even more fun. With the update 2.0, soon we will be able to celebrate the Venice Carnival also in Animal Crossing: New Horizons thanks to the new clothing items - Venetian carnival masks introduced on Able Sister’s store specifically for this event.
