Welcome to my site! 

My name is Gianfranco Zanardo, and I am a Venetian mask maker. Although I now live in Victoria, BC, Canada, I was born and raised in Venice, Italy, where I learned to make authentic Venetian masks using the ancient techniques of master mask makers. These masks are wearable, comfortable, and make wonderful gifts/home decorations.

All masks are original, handmade Venetian masks that have been made in Venice, Italy, by my close mask making friends or by me. Every mask on my site has been created with utmost care, using only the finest materials from Venice, Italy. Each phase of the mask-making process has been carefully and precisely worked by hand, as you will note by clicking on any image. As you will also note, my masks are not mass-produced! There are no two masks exactly alike. If you are looking for the best quality and best priced masks, then you have come to right place.

All masks come in a variety of colours, not just those displayed in the pictures. I can even colour-customize your mask to match your costume or outfit. 
 
We are now available for wholesale orders, as well as wedding, party, convention, and festival orders.

I hope you enjoy looking at my masks!

Thank-you,
Gianfranco
