Beautiful and charming small shop. We bought a wonderful mask, completely original and handmade. They have classical Venetian masks and many other designs. As one the previous reviews mentions: buying one of these masks is bringing a piece of art to your home!

One of our favourite parts of our trip to Venice was the opportunity to visit the various artist's shops to get a flavour for the living history of this special city. These masks typify the city: breathtakingly beautiful, unique, yet warm and functional. I think...More

Alberto is a very pleasant artist, one of about 7 or 8 left in Venice, who makes carnival masks from scratch. When you visit his shop, you witness him making them, and you can buy a mask with the certainty it was made in Venice...More

Came across this shop by chance and fell in love with the tiny space, crammed full of wonderful, extraordinary masks. Got chatting to the artist who makes them and he was very interesting and happy to answer questions. Bought an owl mask which I love,...More

By far the most traditional and beatiful venetian masks. You can see them working right by you, everything is handmade and hand painted. Their masks has been sold all over the world as they ship them to you if you are not able to carry...More

The proprietor makes the masks himself by hand. They are all gorgeous with many varied designs. Much better quality than the ones sold on the streets or in the tourist shops. He will wrap them for travel if needed.
