An exclusive itinerary that will reveal the secrets of these artisans in creating a mask or a period costume ... .. a blend of mystery, craftsmanship and tradition that has been captivating travellers for centuries.
Tour highlights
  • Meet your guide and continue to Dorsoduro, one of the most lively districts of the city, busy with small artisan workshops and jealously guarding its many artistic monuments.
  • Visit one of the few remaining mask-making workshops that can still boast the title of “mascareri”, the mask-makers that have been active in Venice since the dogeship of Francesco Foscari. During your visit you will witness all the stages of the ancient mask-making  process, from modelling the clay to create the mould, to the layering of the papier mache and the final decoration.
  • Welcome drink at one of the world's most prestigious Venetian ateliers and visit to the costume workshop. From the heart of Venice where it is located, skilled and experienced hands create unique and precious period and stage costumes. Deep technical knowledge, respect for period cuts and fabrics as well as the expertise of how to use them combined with ongoing research to identify the costume with its historical period guarantee an artistic product that makes these creations appreciated all over the world.
The art of costume-making has been handed down over the generations, redeveloped by the professionally trained staff and the over 50 years experience of the owner, which led to the creation of a vast repertoire of costumes for the carnival of Venice, period costumes, formal wear, and evening clothes.
  • Lunch at a local trattoria serving typical Venetian cooking.

مزيد من المعلومات
Nexa was established in the 1990s when, after graduating from Ca' Foscari University in Anglo American Language and Literature and a period of training in London and New York, Gilda Zaffagnini decided to turn her long-time passion into a profession, organising events and promoting meetings. She chose Venice as the headquarters for her firm, and, capitalizing on important contacts in the academic world and in different international organisations, she began to organise conferences, specialized workshops and prestigious corporate events.
Nexa soon became a well-known and highly successful PCO firm, funnelling ideas and skills into new projects  in particular, putting together a group of gifted people, a young and dynamic team with a special talent for organisation, able to develop any project with precision, creativity and sophistication. This could only lead to the organisation of corporate events for large companies, foundations and institutions of international renown such as the Umberto Veronesi Foundation and the prestigious Aspen Institute Italy. All are held in magical venues and locations rich in history and stunning beauty that play a key role in ensuring the client's communication goals are met in every project. Nexa is a flexible and compact firm that grows together with its clients, diversifying its activities and ready to take up the challenges offered by new sectors. So academic and scientific conferences stand side by side with corporate events, cultural meetings and gala nights, stylish openings and meetings for major international luxury brands - such as Valentino, Louis Vuitton, Swarovski, Dolce & Gabbana, Dior, Alberta Ferretti - in addition to the fantastic parties organised in patrician palaces. Venice in itself is the ideal venue: the locations, activities and traditions that are the unique heritage of this city and the certainty of its international vocation highlight any presence and any participation. But it is especially on the "Made in Italy" concept that the company intends to focus, through the consolidation of a network of relationships that enhance the skills and the true strength of each player.
For this reason, Nexa has recently been devoting increasing interest to forging partnerships with top-tier businesses, professionals, consultants, PR professionals and quality suppliers with the aim of strengthening the lines of action and respond to the most diverse market trends. Nexa's success in consolidating the loyalty of its top international clients is a result of the implementation of effective strategies and proper visibility, even when faced with the most demanding requirements or specifications, because the firm guides the development of the project and the realization of the event alongside the client, with the goal of exceeding their expectations and those of their guests.
We are ready to listen, advise and propose, so that your project can turn into targeted, productive and effective action.
