During the Venice Carnivals, the streets of Venice were filled with people wearing masks.  This allowed them to protect their identity and removed any social differences.

The most famous Carnival mask was named Bauta, which was a full-face mask with no mouth but with a beak-like chin that covered the mouth and allowed the wearer to eat, drink, and talk without removing the mask.  It was typically work with a cloak and tricorn hart."
