Back from Venice, I want to introduce the work of Schegge. When you come in Venice, you can find lots of masks … most of them very kitsch. That is a part of the attraction and the tourist market takes advantage of the place and the symbol to make money.
For those who do not search just a souvenir but want to have a real mask of Venice, Schegge is one of the place to go. In this shop, close to Santa Maria Formosa, you will find wonderful hand-made masks. You can meet here the very friendly artists (a mother and her daughter : Angela and Anna Lisa) who are painting masks ; a meticulous family workshop.
Each mask is a jewel and it is hard to choose one. The colors and materials are fine and noble.
Schegge is also known for the masks which reproduce masterpieces of the art history. It is also possible for everyone to ask them to paint your favorite work … in order to personalize your mask.
A real work of artist.
That makes the difference.
