Stumbled across Casanova on our walking adventure and were amazed at how good the masks were. The man in the shop was actually making a mask as we were there, layers of paper mache. If you want a real Handmade Venetian mask this is the shop, don't waste your money on cheap imported rubbish from china. The service was very... More

I got a cat-mask from this place. The manufacturer, who was working inside the shop making another mask, explained how it is done, and showed us the original mold. Really charming shop, where you can actually watch how the masks are made. The painting on my cat-mask is really beautiful!

You would think a handmade and painted mask would be too expensive, but if you want a real mask of Venice come to Casanova. Prices are very reasonable and not made in China!

We love this real hidden gem. Not only is the owner/artisan a pleasure to talk to he is also highly skilled in his art. We buy a new mask every visit to Venice and wouldn't dream of going anywhere else. Buying local helps the economy and also provides a piece of magic to take home.

We stumbled upon this shop in Calle del Cristo and the artist took a great interest in showing us his creations and how he paints them. Ended up buying one which had a very unique shape and cut on the forehead. Very helpful gentleman who takes great pride in his craft.

The prices were lower than in Venice but some of the masks were amazing in detail (maybe easier to ship back than try to bring back with you)... ? They had a nice range from cheaper to more elaborate masks - a bit pricey but that's what you expect when in Venice.
