A number of our Traditional Venetian Masks
are replicas of the masks used in the Commedia dell'Arte. Mask designs such as Pantalone, Il Dottore (the Doctor), Alrecchino (Harlequin), Pulcinella, Zanni and Il Capitano (the Captain) are all characters from this improvised form of theater and the masks in this section are true replicas of the ones used in the 15th Century.
Other masks in this category are classical designs, which although a little more modern in that they date from the 18th Century or so (!) such as Pierrot and the Comedy/Tragedy and of course the Phantom masks made famous in the show "Phantom of the Opera".
