The area
Address
Neighborhood: Castello
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighborhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.

My husband, who loves photography, and I went to Italy on our honeymoon. Atelier flavia gave us the best souvenir we could ask for - a Carnival themed photoshoot.

The owner and her son were extremely accommodating and helpful. The owner was able to take a single look at me, know my size, and find a costune that would fit. We rented the costume for an hour, and the owner's son toured us around to nearby locations for photos. My husband took so many amazing photos of me. It was priceless.

I also bought the gorgeous green velvet mask pictured below. It was reasonably priced and exquisitely made.

I have the most wonderful experience, very very nice store :)
Family-owned business that custom creates period costumes for Venice Carnivale.
At the time I paid 50 Euro for a 1 hour rental to be dressed in the costume that I chose to take my own pictures in.. this was a must do for me while I was visiting Venice Italy! They speak broken english but we were able to communicate. My GPS took me a little wonky so make sure you do have plenty of time to find the place. I am so happy I did this. I'm only posting one picture, even though I have tons! They do also offer professional photography for an additional charge. They will also make and sell costumes. You choose your era. Excellent Quality!!! Highly Recommend :)

I visited this store a little under a month ago when I was in Venice. The staff were absolutely lovely and told me and my friends so much about the history of the masks and Venice as a whole, and about their experience in making the costumes and masks. I would definitely recommend stopping into this store and having a chat to anyone working. They were very welcoming and spoke great english!

When we first arrived, Esther walked us through the steps of making the papier maché masks. She let us look around and touch the masks as well as take photos with them on. This was a fun and quick activity to do while taking a break from the Venice heat. Well recommended!

I rented a costume for an hour.
Flavia helped me choose a beautiful historical costume and Adriano led me to some great photo locations close to the shop. Both were very kind and knowledgable about their craft. I had lots of fun acting the part on the way and will undoubtedly be part of some other tourists' memory of Venice.
Afterwards I admired the finely handcrafted masks in the shop.
Highly recommended activity for a great hour or two!
