“The people who buy from me, know that it is handmade so, no matter what it is, even in the case of resin, they know that it is handmade and that it is a unique piece. My smile and my hospitality will with no doubt speak to you about my work.”

Marilisa Dal Cason

Meet Marilisa Dal Cason


Creator of authentic Venetian mask

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.
