What you'll do

I will welcome and prepare you for the amazing experience, providing a typical working apron. On the table there will be all the tools and colors to personalize your own mask. The experience starts with the choice of the mask to paint and decorate: there many different kinds and you can choose the one you prefer. During the activity I will teach you the technique of painting in according to the ancient venetian traditions. The mask realized by you will be a unique and exclusive piece of local handicraft that you will bring at your home!

Giorgio

I am Giorgio Galasso, born at the end of 50’s on the island of Giudecca, historical district of Venice. I decided to turn my passion for carnival masks into a profession and I opened my workshop. My aim is sharing with the visitors the art of the masks through the decoration and creation of these handcrafted artworks. In the workshop, from a few steps to St. Mark’s Square, I and my son Niccolo’ carry on this ancient tradition, proud to share and transmit this fascinating and ancient profession.
