During this workshop you will have the opportunity to visit the first mask workshop in Italy and to meet a real craftsman decorator who will briefly explain the history of Carnival masks. You will have the chance to witness the the manufacturing of a papier-maché mask and learn more about traditional decoration techniques.

La Fucina dei Miracoli creates metal and papier-mâché masks manufactured by expert artisans. The company was founded in 1975 by Vincenzo Della Croce, a brilliant stage actor and set designer from Verona.
