“Are you looking for something special for someone special?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

We were looking for a mask, but not some run of the mill type of mask. We found it at this place. The shop is full of masks and some are very unusual. One has to be careful walkiing in all these stores, they are small with a lot of objects hanging everywhere. We purchased an unusual hand painted mask as a present for abot 100 Euro. We then spent the next 14 days in Italy worrying how not to break it. But it made it to the States and was a hit when daughter saw it.

“A Magic Factory”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

I am a Commedia fanatic and going to a place like this was as close to heaven as I could imagine!
A fantastic selection and a delightfully eccentric proprietor!
Really ornate designs and fantastic detail.

“Wouldn't go back here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Initially very welcoming shopkeeper - tells you to touch and enjoy the masks. Very busy shop and a mask fell off its hook. Noone was near to it - just one of those things - but the guy was determined to blame someone and had a good old go at one poor guy. Altogether unpleasant and I wouldn't set foot inside again. Try Casanova in Calle del Cristo in the San Polo area instead.

“good selection and fair prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

This mask shop was one of three that was recommended by our Venitian guide. Our guide was very professional and very informative so we felt she wouldn't steer us wrong. We got to the shop at 1pm and they were just closing the doors for lunch. (Very inconvenient) So we went to have lunch ourselves and came back a couple hours later. Once we got into the shop we found a very nice selection of masks and what we thought were fair prices. I would suggest this shop as a possible place to find an authentic mask if you are in the market for one.
