  • Giancarlo has welcomed us and our little girl with great openness and friendliness to make live the unique experience of working in a workshop for the production of papier-mâché masks. Unique experience that has left our daughter excited and happy! Recommended for all children! One way to know Venice deeper and feel part of the tradition.

  • We passed this workshop by chance and was not disappointed! Mask Carnival at any price! The craftsman's passionate he explained the price difference and the difference between industrial masks very very little expensive and sold in 95 percent of the shops in Venice and those created with his own hands certainly more expensive but handmade actually and not industrial Venice! very friendly artisan!

  • We walked almost by accident in this tiny little shop near San Zanipolo is a young craftsman intent on painting a mask answered questions and nagging of my youngest child; the friendliness and helpfulness of proprietor (Giancarlo?) we were fascinated and were nearly fifteen minutes to speak, it is true at the end we even bought something, but it was a pleasure to be with a local craftsman!

  • It has been over 2 and a half years since my wife and I visited this amazing customer mask shop! Every time we see our mask we recap our time in Venice and we wish to have purchased more! We are planning another trip to Venice soon and we are looking forward to bringing home a new masterpiece!
  • Beautiful handmade, hand painted masks from the tradition of carnaval. Great prices, wonderful owners
  • A very good explenation about how a real mask is made. They have a craftscorner where they make the masks themself. We bought a real pretty one for €25 :)
  • Tiny little shop selling handmade handpainted venetian ceramics and masks, has masks for various budgets and sizes. Got shown how the 'made-in-china' masks that you see everywhere in venice is just painted plastic masks, versus the authentic ones from papier mache in Venice. Managed to see a mask being made while looking around and in the end left with a small ceramic venetian mask as a keepsake for a reasonable price :) highly reccomend!!
  • Favorite Carnevale mask shop in Venice. Handmade by a couple and with great detail. Owner was very helpful and was able to have it shipped to USA ($20-30 3 day shipping) They also sells small decorated ceramics. Highly recommended!

Where to stay in Venice

Save money and avoid tourist crowds by booking your accommodation outside the historical center of Venice. Central Venice is full of picturesque canals and narrow lanes, but it is also extremely noisy and hectic throughout the day and late into the night. You can explore the ancient city's charms at your own pace by staying at a comfortable B&B or small hotel located in the city's residential suburbs. To stay close to the finest beaches and restaurants, check into a hotel on the island of Lido, the city's famous seaside resort.
