Atelier Marega Mask

For centuries, handpainted papier mache masks have been the go-to for masquerade balls, and this Venice-based mask artist is carrying on the tradition beautifully. Atelier Marega has mastered the ancient art of papier-maché masks in the Venetian tradition.

Located in the center of Venice, Atelier Marega is known as one of the best local mask-makers (in a town famous for its masks). The Atelier’s exquisite shapes, meticulous painting, vibrant traditional colors, and exceptional quality have made them a local favorite in their hometown of Venice, a town famous for its masks.

In addition to their magnificent masks, the Atelier also hand-makes magnificent costumes, available for sale or rent, which provide the perfect accompaniment to their papier-maché creations.

You can check out all of Atelier Marega’s gorgeous costume pieces on their website and on Etsy.

  2. They are indeed lovely masks. I listened to a children’s story about Vivaldi where Carnival and masks are featured in a mystery story and since then I have always wanted to visit Venice and wear a beautiful mask. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I’ve always been fascinated by masks, especially the Venetian ones. Masks often reveal as much as they conceal. 🙂
