Wandering the streets of Venice, you could look at Marilisa’s shop and think of it as a souvenir outlet. However, you couldn’t be further from the truth. Marilisa is the custodian of a long-lasting tradition, the masks of the Carnival of Venice. She creates most of her masks respecting at each step the traditional techniques of Venetian mask making. Each step is done with great care and passion. What we loved about Marilisa is her humility… for her, the satisfaction of excellence is not something to parade. And her love for what she does is contagious.
