  1. Wandering the alleys of modern Venice at night during Carneval is a seriously creepy experience. The masks are anything but reassuring. It was scary enough with unevenly spaced electrical lights. I can’t imagine what it must have been like with only lanterns and torches. All in all, still fascinating many centuries on !
