It is said that the Carnival of Venice was started from a victory of the "Serenissima Repubblica" against the Patriarch of Aquileia, Ulrico di Treven in the year 1162. In the honor of this victory, the people started to dance and make reunions in San Marco Square. Apparently, this festival started on that period and became official in the Renaissance.In the seventeenth century, the baroque carnival was a way to save the prestigious image of Venice in the world.It was very famous during the eighteenth century.It encouraged licence and pleasure, but it was also used to protect Venetians against the anguish for present time and future.However, under the rule of the King of Austria, the festival was outlawed entirely in 1797 and the use of masks became strictly forbidden. It reappeared gradually in the nineteenth century, but only for short periods and above all for private feasts, where it became an occasion for artistic creations.

After a long absence, the Carnival returned to operate in 1979.The Italian government decided to bring back the history and culture of Venice, and sought to use the traditional Carnival as the centerpiece of its efforts. The redevelopment of the masks began as the pursuit of some Venetian college students for the tourist trade. Today, approximately 3 million visitors come to Venice every year for the Carnival. One of the most important events is the contest for la maschera più bella ("the most beautiful mask") placed at the last weekend of the Carnival and judged by a panel of international costume and fashion designers.

"Always choose that work that transmits something to you, that sensitizes you above all and remember that Art is interpretation among other things." INTERVIEW: 1 ) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cs1ugetuyP8 2 ) https://www.raisonne.studio/project-courses/3 3 ) https://www.lanacion.com.ar/deportes/turf/el-pincel-que-atrapo-la-belleza-del-turf-nid915157/ Architect. Since 1985 he is trained in the plastic arts at the Academy of Miguel Perez Macias where he develops Drawing and Painting with references from the Italian Renaissance and French Impressionism. He later implements the Pen technique in his Drawings. Like the great Masters. Approaching the countries of this Artist's Painting may amount to the most prodigious of adventures. Undertaken in the first place by his overflowing imagination, immediately encoded by a series of numbered visions, in which Venice and motherhood, in addition expressive photographs and impressive nudes find a preponderant place, and that have their most immediate justification and their most complete explanation in those same other paintings, small and in secondary appearances, which complete and notably enrich the main composition. Marco Ortolan reveals himself as what he is, a first-rate painter, a heir, sure and confident and of the first line, of the plastic goods of the Italian Renaissance, to which he repeatedly alludes, and not only for compositional reasons. , but in search of the cleanest roots of his art, so deepened and expanded that also his work, his own, concludes to be taken as born in In the mid-sixteenth century, and in that privileged place, Venice, whose waters continue to flow, perennially, and without ever interrupting the vitality of its creative ebb. Venice, and within it, several works of art born in different latitudes of that Italy always astonishing when it comes to measuring the capacity and great quality of its various and important static currents throughout so many centuries, which nevertheless achieve the true miracle that this current is constantly renewed and fresh, so much so that the same Marco Ortolan's work seems to emanate from it, not an attitude of respect and great aesthetic understanding, two of the greatest virtues of what this young Architect and Painter, insofar as he takes to the canvas.
