Some great street performers I spotted in Venice, Italy during Carnevale. They are not dressed as the medico della peste, or plague doctor; rather, I’m pretty sure they’re a pair of Zanni (fools), which comes from the Commedia dell’arte tradition. Supposedly, the longer a Zanni’s nose, the more foolish he is.
