Great Venetian Masks

Venetian masks are a centuries-old tradition of Venice, Italy. The masks are typically worn during the Carnevale (Carnival of Venice), but have been used on many other occasions in the past, usually as a device for hiding the wearer’s identity and social status. The mask would permit the wearer to act more freely in cases where he or she wanted to interact with other members of the society outside the bounds of identity and everyday convention. It was thus useful for a variety of purposes, some of them illicit or criminal, others just personal, such as romantic encounters. For centuries, masks have been a part of Venetian lore, culture and history. From the beginnings of the Venetian Republic to Carnivale (known as Mardi Gras by the rest of the world), to theatre and art, Venetian masks have played a mystical, alluring and enchanting part in Venetian history. A Venetian mask or Italian mask from Visions of Venice is handcrafted in Venice, Italy, using centuries’ old techniques. All of our masks are authentic and imported directly from the manufacturer. Since all of our masks are handcrafted, no two Venetian masks are ever identical. We have a wide range of styles, designs and colors that can accentuate your home or office. Take a look at these great collection of Venetian masks. :)
