If you are wondering what makes customers choose real Venetian for their special occasion celebration, it is because they prefer the quality and authenticity.
This mask comes with a Certificate of Authenticity which tells you it has been made by hand, in Venice, by craftsmen following a tradition sustained through the centuries. Apprentices today learn and practice this age old craft. Also known as the Mascherari, they become well-respected for their mask making skills and continue to create the elaborate masks modelled every year at the annual carnival.
The Carnivale di Venezia welcomes over 3 million people to the city every year for the world famous celebrations. Everyone wants to wear a masquerade costume, and it’s the elaborate masks which signify the tradition.
And it’s a tradition which has been popular since medieval times. First worn for practical reasons when Venetians wanted more privacy in an overcrowded city, the mask eventually became a Carnival icon and the Carnival became the most important event on the Venice calendar.
Nothing stopped the Carnival – until Austria took over the city in the 18th century. It was to be a further 2 centuries until the Carnival was revived. And after that one time, it has gained in popularity across the world ever since.
