We spent the day trying to find this place on the suggestion of a coworker. Really wish we wouldn't have put in so much effort.

My family did an amazing one and a half hour private mask-making lesson at Ca'Macana! Me, my husband and our three kids (ages 14, 11 and 8) had a fantastic time making the masks and got much more into it then we thought we would! The instruction was great and the masks are beautiful. The class was a real highlight!... More

A magical place displaying an abundance of masks depicting a variety of personas and creatures, all created and painted with splendid workmanship. Friendly helpful salespeople. They have 3 locations, two shops selling masks and one workshop where you can paint your own mask. You might have to explore a bit to find the shops but persevere because the reward is... More

Last week, we enjoyed a wonderful 2+ hr class with Mirta. She was terrific! We learned about the interesting history of the mask in Venetian life, the various types of masks, and design styles for making them. Then, we each made 2 masks, with Mirta's skillful and patient guidance. We were a group of four, two quite senior adults, one... More

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighbourhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
