This is a Masks selling place. The lady that works there is one of the best sales person I new. She is not pushing you, just telling you about the product. They also have scarf broaches as a small... more »
Unfortunately, I didn't get her name, but the lady at the store was extremely pleasant and helpful. She didn't rush me nor did she get upset when I couldn't make up my mind about which mask I wanted to purchase. She even want as far as tying the masks for me and letting me know when her shift was over. She gave me a discounted price in case I wanted to purchase both masks that I liked. But enough about the staff. This place has AMAZING masks. I've never seen masks like this anywhere else. On the lower end, you can get masks for 25€, and on the higher end, they go up to a few thousand. Either way, their masks are high quality and they're unique and they're handmade. Although I had a lower budget of around 100€, without looking at the prices, 3 out of the 4 of the masks that I really liked were within my budget. I ended up buying two masks because the lady at the store gave me a special price when I couldn't decide between the two I liked. All in all, I had a great shopping experience at la moretta, the service was superb, and the masks that I bought were worth every penny. If you're visiting Venice, make sure to definitely check out this store!
We were randomly walking the town of Venice, when the beautiful masks in the storefront drew our attention. We decided to walk in and were kindly greeted by the lady that worked there. The interior had a very professional feel to it and the masks looked remarkable in quality, compared to the ones closer to the San Marco Square. After giving us the chance to just walk around a little she came over to explain a little about the specific masks we were looking at. She shared that they were made in a traditional way using paper mache and the way she talked about it showed how much knowledge, passion and love she had for this job. I respect people who show such care and passion for their craftsmanship which really sealed the deal to buy something from her shop specifically. She didn't push us in to doing anything and left us alone until we came to her asking for information about certain masks. If you're looking for a legitimate Venetian mask made with love for its art and tradition, I highly recommend coming here.
