  • From the outside you see this little wooden shop full of pictures with lots of photos of a gentleman next to many celebrities. We ask ourselves why this myriad of photos, if they are not merely the result of a short holiday abroad or an illustrious figure of the cinema or just an enthusiast, whereas annually the lagoon is the haunt of the major filmmakers in the world. As soon as he crosses the threshold the same protagonist, a man from the air affable, welcomes lovingly with his dirty apron work, ready to help you by explaining the work behind every mask, with modesty and availability clearly responds to the questions that they were blending in the head. Besides being a craftsman has collaborated with distinguished people of cinema, among them also the renowned filmmaker Stanley Kubrick film Eyes Wide Shut! I was delighted when she signed at the time of purchase the mask and went over to meet me at checkout, nice person and truly kind-hearted definitely recommended, when I return to Venice I will definitely stay here just to say hi!

  • Our favourite shop in Venice, from which we never go without a new masterpiece of this wizard. All, of course, is done by hand, so each work same or even similar at first glance masks differ in the details. Author-theatre artist and his style is unique and recognizable, if you look here, you will learn that at Rialto Bridge shop exists already since 1984 and during this time the author has received numerous international awards, has participated in art exhibitions, etc., that personally for us in choosing the really worthwhile stuff. Unfortunately, in Venice there are only 4-5 Masters, everything else-Chinese counterfeits these masks that are trying times for something serious. So if you want to buy really genuine, valuable thing, then you should visit this place, the prices vary, and there are small and large masks, so, as they say, is where to roam and choose from

  • The masks are handmade - you can watch them working right there at the back of the shop. Their prices are very reasonable, and their designs unique.
