Venetian Masks

Hide who I am, and help me to find the best mask for my intents.
(William Shakespeare)

Precious traditions

Bellagio is like Venice: it has a strong evocative power thanks to its landscapes, colours and its romantic spirit, everything here to be discovered. Close your eyes and meet your mask, look at it, get into it and bring it with you in your small Venice. Shape your model and build your paper-mache mask (carta pesta); while laying paper, your mind will draw lines, choose colours, find the most hidden part, till your mask has been created and you just need to finish it by giving your personal expressive touch. The dream of realizing a fascinating Venetian Mask through the classical techniques of the old masters comes true and flows on the romantic water of Lake Como; wear your story and take part into a party at beautiful antique residences where everything is possible and the impossibile becomes real.
