Venice Art Mask, Venice

#120 of 189 in Shopping in Venice
Venice Art was founded by Edmond Angoni, a local who lived in Italy, it employs 260 people to manually make 30,000 masks per year using the labour-intensive cartapesta technique, which uses glue-moistened sheets of paper to create the mask structure and relief. Ranging from simple models covering just the eyes, the most extravagant full-face masks are true works of art, incorporating various types of decoration, including painted scenes. The masks are popular at the Venice carnival celebrations, and are exported mainly to Italy, France, Greece, Japan, Canada and the USA. The workshop is also known for providing the masks for Stanley Kubrick's film Eyes Wide Shut. The factory shop can be visited by appointment and has hundreds of different designs at prices well below Venice levels, ranging from €20-150. You can ask to have a quick look at the work-floor too.

  • We were in various factories and shops, we saw plastic replicas, but we wanted something traditional. In the factories of papier-mâché masks, we saw all kinds of finishing, from the most simple and rustic to the finest and well done. The prices are quite standardized in all that offer the traditional product, what changes is the quality of the finish and the negotiation. In the Venice Art Mask, we found what we wanted, a great finish, in model/colors that we had in mind and still a good negotiation. In addition to our baby won a MIME (small magnet mask). You can rotate and search, but include this store in the script and I'm sure you won't regret it.
