A mask tells us more than a face
Oscar Wilde concentrates in one sentence the power of the object that, par excellence, is associated to mystery. Moreover, to wear a mask means to break the boundaries of time and enter the Venice of the Serenissima period, through a real work of art that evokes the same atmosphere. In the Venice of that period, people saw the mask as a tool to state their own freedom to be whoever they wanted to be. Sometimes it was even mandatory.
Follow us in this journey across time and you will discover the secrets that Venice hides behind its masks, but also the origins and the meaning of the Commedia dell’Arte masks and of all the other masks created by Kartaruga.
