Genuine Venetian Craftwork, Genuine People
Aug 2019
Just over a year ago, in April, I was married in Venice. We travelled around Europe for two months but one of the most wonderful moments in all my journey was the few hours I spent over two days making a mask at Sogno Veneziano Atelier. My wife bought this for me as a present, knowing my love for masks and ancient crafts, and it one of the best and most thoughtful presents as ever I have received. The mask I made is the one I'm wearing in the picture attached.

Not only was the two day short course enjoyable and enriching, sending me away with the basis of a whole new skill, the staff were joyous people whom it was lovely to meet. I remained with Ektor and Igor (sorry if the spelling is wrong) and the two wonderful women also working there that day (whose names escape me now, a year later, also very sorry) for hours after my allotted time a they helped me finish touches on my mask, helped me practice my vestigial Venetian language skills, and regaled me with the philosophy and history of Venice. Igor spoke with me at length about his appreciation for true tourists who wanted to experience the life blood of his city and how he never wanted to treat tourists as a 'cash machine,' as some other tourist experiences may wish to do. This is one of the few genuine mask shops left in Venice that use no pre-made parts or plastics or shortcuts. My only regret is that it has taken me so long to get around to writing this review.

I'll also add that this has been a hard year for Venice, with floods, plague, and the damage of cruise ships. Please, if you have time now or in the future, support genuine Venetian businesses such as this one. You will feel like you have really touched something close to the heart of one of the most beautiful cities on Earth.
