My name is Gianfranco Zanardo. I was born and raised in Venice, Italy. In 2003, I moved to Victoria, British Columbia, in Canada, where I now reside.

I learned my craft from well-established, master Venetian mask maker "Baster." He taught me the art of antique Venetian mask making, a passion that has been in his family for generations.

I hope you enjoy looking at my masks as much as I enjoy making them!

If you need a mask for Hallowe'en, a masquerade ball, a private party, or any other masked event, please send me an e-mail.

I import some masks from Venice, Italy, my hometown, but I mostly make my own authentic Venetian masks in many styles and colours. Most masks are wearable but others are for display purposes. I also make authentic Commedia dell' Arte masks, Venetian theatre masks, and Steampunk and Cyborg masks. I am located in Victoria, BC., Canada, but I can ship to anywhere in the world!

Thank you for exploring my world of masks!
