Hello! I bought one of your beautiful masks at The Chemainus Gift Shop last year. There was a large variety at that time however I guess that most of them sold!  I wish I had bought more...  I did get a fantastic full face mask with a circle of amazing black and dark red feathers around the face. Most beautiful!!! Do you still have any that have a full face and look like a silver leaf? Or there was a spectacular one, again fullface, white with a hat and feathers, very Marie Antoinette era!!! Thanks for your accomplished art!! Laurie

Hello! I love all you're masks so much and wish I could make them as good as you! :-] I love all the detail you put on them, and just by looking at them I can tell you spent a lot of time on them. We are doing Venetian masks at school, but I know they won't be as good as yours. Love the work you're doing, keep making as many masks as possible! :-]

My husband and I recently purchased a very beautiful green 'jester' mask from Lilliana and Gianfranco.  It holds a place of honour on our dining room wall.
Each morning I greet her with "Ciao, Bella" and am heart-filled and grateful for the talent expressed in this and all of the beautiful Venetian masks.
Grazie! Margaret

Hi, your masks are amazing, it's crazy that you can make those masks out of paper mache'. In art class we are making masks and i hope that my mask turns out great, like yours but i'm sure that mine isn't going to be as good as yours.

Saw your masks at the Canada Day celebration in Victoria...bought the beautiful double face mask with the musical notes as the background.  Will be adding more to our collection and face masks to wear to an upcoming masquerad ball here in Scottsdale.  They are fabulous.

I am wanting you to know that both Bruce and I watched Human Target, January 14, nd it was on tonight too January 16, and were so impressed with the MASKS.  The close ups were absolutely incredible.  As I look at your Album of Masks, I can pick out a few being the Bauta, which was black and gold, and I was really impressed with the close ups of the red and gold trimmed masks as well.  What really grabbed my attention was the Mask with the long nose, the Piccolo Turco which was shown in such eerie lighting.  CONGRATULATIONS ON TV PURCHASING YOUR MASKS FOR THIS GREAT TV SHOW - this is a milestone, and a celebration in many many ways.  I hope to see more of your masks used by theatre and movies in the years to come, they are "OUTSTANDING" "BEAUTIFUL" and are in a class of their own.  Victoria, BC should be very proud of their very own Venetian Mask Makers - you are talente, unique and special.

Hello Gianfranco and Lilliana, I just purchased a beautiful full face feathered mask (balck and red feathers with gold "antique" face, at the Parksville Kris Kringle Craft Fair. I so much enjoyed speaking with you both, and I will definitely be purchasing some masks made by you in the future. I am very pleased with my purchase; as although I was in your beautiful city in June, I was not able to carry a similar mask home.

Dear Gianfranco,

I was delighted to find you and your masks at the Market on Sunday.  I wanted to purchase them all but, of course, that is impossible.  I was given two masks in the past as a gift and have displayed the one I purchased from you in the cabinet as well.  It sits in centre place in all its splendor.  What makes it more memorable is the fact you made it.  I will be returning for another soon.  Thank you for bringing this beautiful art form to Victoria.

Dear Gianfranco:

I want to take this opportunity to thank you, and compliment you, on your beautiful work and your generosity.

I was the lucky successful bidder on a beautiful mask that you recently donated for a Crohn's Disease benefit that was held in Cadboro Bay.

I couldn't be happier with the mask that I ordered!!  Finding out that I was going to be attending the Snowflake Ball here in Ottawa, a Venetian Masquerade Ball no less, I was worried about where I would find a beautiful, authentic mask.  Coming upon this website and contacting the MAGNIFICENT artisan and his very personable, helpful and friendly wife, I knew that I had no need to worry.  The mask that was created for me is simply breathtaking.  When people complimented me on my stunning mask, I did not even hestitate to tell them where I had gotten it and what a skilled, masterful artist he is.  I will be coming back here for this year's Snowflake Ball and my friends and family have been so impressed that they are letting me know that these gorgeous masks would make the perfect gifts for them.  Thanks so much for the positive experience and the stunning mask!!

Ah, I have found you once again. Seeing your masks never gets old for me, love looking even if they are of the same bunch. =)

I can't wait to stop by your spot in the Victoria Market Square in the summer.

ps: the two white and silver joker face's (male and female) with the bells are still stunning and on my wall with the rest.

I've just recently become intrigued by Venetian Masquerade and your site has given me great ideas as to what to look for because I am planning on attending a Venetian Masquerade at some point in my life. I just wanted to say thank you for creating this site, and I'm sure many others feel the same. =D

 Beautiful, I want to learn the craft as well. I'm a skilled oil painter, this would certainly be different but I've always toyed with the idea, I'd be good at it. I've been to Venice three times, been to Victoria BC once, both lovely and inspiring. Thank you for what you do. Best regards from Austin, TX.

I love your masks! I went to Victoria, B.C., Canada over the weekend for vacation and came by your masks. I've never seen such beautiful masks in my entire life! I don't live near Victoria, so I HAD to buy one myself. I plan on going by and buying more masks when I do visit Victoria again.

Hello Gianfranco and Lilliana, it was great to meet you two at the fair. I wore the mask I got from you at a benefit function we had here on Hornby Island. It was so much fun to wear and it generated a lot of interest. Many, many compliments!  Cheers, Rachelle
