The Rostov Regional Museum of Local History and Geography opens an unusual exhibition – Without Face, an interactive art project. Locals and visitors will have a chance to go on a journey – through times and historical periods – into a mysterious world of masks. For ages, they have been symbols of mysticism and illusion. Iron punitive masks of the times of the Inquisition. Venetian masks used not only during the carnival, but also in everyday life. Why the moretta mask was popularly called the delight of husbands and was a must-have for any self-respecting Venetian lady. Visitors will learn that death masks, which are an impression taken directly from a corpse, were an alternative to a photo. At the exposition, you will see likenesses of Sergei Yesenin and Nikolai Gogol.
