Play, Love and Madness in the Popular Imagination. From Dante’s Creatures to the Commedia dell’Arte

The monumental complex of the Scuola Grande di San Giovanni Evangelista, the oldest Scuola, among those still functioning in the city, hosts a thematic exhibition which displays the masks created by Maestro Giorgio de Marchi with the artistic direction of Eleonora Fuser. On the occasion of the Carnival and in honor of a very ancient art, that of the macarer, the craftsman who made masks, according to the Venetian tradition from the mid-16th century, the exhibition is enriched with a program of theatrical events and workshops for adults and children held by today's mascareri.
