Paloma was very patient and supportive as our two children painted for over two hours! She was engaging and knowledgeable, taking time to explain the history of the masks and putting them in the context of Venetian history. A real treasure that we will remember.

There's a lot of mask shops in Venice but I'm drawn to the masks here. The one that I'm wearing is so beautiful and perfectly crafted, unique masks here. The shop is also very spacious and comfortable! Great place for masquerade/Halloween/Carnivale shopping :)
