Masks for Carnavale
I took Laura one afternoon with the HU student to visit a Firenze artisian bottegga. We were there about three hours and learned the art of mask making. Since Carnavale was coming up, we all make our own masks. It was quite a process and a long one. Laura made her very own mask and I stayed out of her artistic style.
Carnavale is like "Fat Tuesday". It takes place the day before Ash Wednesday where you can eat all the yummies you desire before Lent. We celebrated at the Villa with a mexican dinner. We all dressed up in our masks and Grant was a cowboy. There was a fun band where Laura and Grant took over the dance floor for a few minutes!
