What you'll do

We'll meet in one of the most authentic area of Venice and together we'll reach the stunning "Serra dei Giardini", an ancient greenhouse restored few years ago. There it will take place our activity!
During this workshop, we will decorate our original Venetian papier-mâché mask with the help of colourful paint, beads and feathers and, of course, you'll bring it home!
Did you know that the Venetian Carnival, in the past, lasted 6 months every year??? During that time, Venetian people could walk around the city wearing a mask without revealing their true identity! The mask was part of every day life and to own one was a real necessity!
Let's come to take part into one of the most Venetian custom: preparing your own, unique, mask! I wait for you!

I'm Martina, founder of MacacoTour. I was born in Mantua and I graduated in Contemporary Art History. I live and love Venice, so I decided to create activities to discover this beatiful city. With a team of professionals with different backgrounds ranging from theater to archeology, from dance to history, we created role-playing games and cultural, educational, and recreational activities in Verona and Venice, the two city of my heart.

We thoroughly enjoyed the mask-making workshop. The setting, the materials, the help and the stories about carnival all made it a fascinating experience for both children and adults alike. We will definitely do this again!

We were with her associate. She was friendly, helpful, fun and very patient. It is definitely at the top of my list for activities I enjoyed the most in Venice.
