Venice, Carnival 2011: The old rose mask - Kind perfection

Here is another picture of a mask from the 2011 Venice Carnival.

I shot this mask in front of the "Campanile di San Marco".
I really love her pose, and the colors of her dress. The border of the hat is fantastic!

Did you know that St Mark's Campanile collapsed in 1902? I've just discovered it thanks to wikipedia.
The reconstruction started in 1903 and lasted until 1913. The tower has been rebuilt exactly how it was, in the same place. (in italian: "dov'era e com'era")
