Mondonovo, Venice

You can’t help but fall for Guerrino Lovato’s Venetian masks based on mythology, allegorical figures and the commedia dell’arte traditions. Imbued with imagination and fun, every piece of his prodigious output is unique. He has realised commissions from La Fenice opera house (to re-create decorative elements lost in the 1996 fire), Stanley Kubrick, Kenneth Branagh, the Vatican and the Kremlin. His tiny workshop contains a boundless universe.
