It is places like this that make Venice magical! Sergio was so very helpful to my friend and I as we happened to come across this lovely store. Sergio explains the masks here are all authentic paper mache as originally designed, he also decorates them beautifully! The masks start as little as €15 which is a great take home gift from Venice.
An incredible and truly authentic Venetian experience. We were looking for something special to take back from our trip, and stumbled across this original Venetian mask maker. He only uses traditional materials and makes each mask by hand. Truly spectacular stuff. The owner has lots of pictures of him with various stars, which backs up his claim that a lot of his work is used in film and TV. Over and above that, he was an amazing guy and really wonderful to talk to. Yes, his work is expensive, but we believe we've purchased a one-off piece of artwork and can't wait to display it at home. If you're looking for an original and authentic piece of Venice to take away with you, then you need to visit Bottega dei mascareri.
