Carnival in the Italian city of Venice attracts large numbers of visitors every year. Venice provides the perfect background for colourful street parades and other celebrations.
Twenty thousand revellers, wearing masks and colourful period costumes, packed into St Mark's Square on Sunday for the "flight of the angel" marking the traditional opening of the Carnival of Venice.
Millions of revelers have braved cold winter weather to attend traditional carnival parades in Germany. The processions often take on a highly satirical note.
At the start of the 2018 carnival season, we wanted photos of you in your favorites disguise.

The Carnival of Venice is famous for the traditional costumes and masks of the region. We meet Francesco Briggi, a local costume designer who makes perfect replicas of historical clothing for the Carnival.
