Alberto Sarria Masks information
Go Gaga or channel Casanova at this atelier, dedicated to the art of masquerade for over 30 years. Sarria's commedia dell'arte masks are worn by theatre companies from Argentina to Osaka – ominous burnished black leather for dramatic leads, harlequin-checquered cartapesta (papier-mâché) for comic foils, starting from around €20. Beyond the masks is a cast of one-of-a-kind marionettes, ready to take their first steps.
