What Makes It Special
In the heart of Venice, Atelier Marega means a wide range of masks: from the typical Venetian ones, the most fanciful and colored ones, to huge creations used also for smart fittings and furnishings. Mask are made of "paper-mache" according to the ancient traditions dated back to the beginning of the XIVth century. Morever, you can rent or buy theatrical and historical costumes, accessories, three-cornered hats, mantels, wigs, shoes and tuxedos. We are open every day from 10 AM to 7.30 PM. We have four shops in Venice: -Calle Larga San Polo 2940/b, Venezia (vicino alla chiesa dei Frari) -Fondamenta dell'Osmarin 4976/a

Wonderful place to visit and purchase. The owner was quite friendly and explained to us how the masks are made. Each mask is hand crafted so no 2 are exactly alike. Definitely worthwhile to stop by for a peek.

We bought a beautiful Venezian mask - the workmanship is fabulous. Such a gorgeous shop and the friendliest "Maschere e Costumi" in Venice.

This is a thriving shop with unique, beautiful, authentic Venetian costumes and accessories. You will find lots of things made in China and finished in Venice....But not at this shop....it is all made in Venice and is all beautiful. Will return for Carnival next year!
