Magia Mask

From 12:00 to 12:30

Magia Mask is a cultural association from Como, born from the passion of Marco di Lauro, a multifaceted artist who, since the 1980s, has dedicated himself with increasing interest to everything related to the art of creating.

It was in the early 1990s that, after a trip to Venice, he decided to project his imagination and creativity into mask-making. In his city, he is the only artist who sets out to research alternative artistic languages, attempting to unite Venice and Como in a single symbiosis, using the raw masks of the lagoon city with the silks and fabrics produced in his home town of Como. His works are a crescendo with the years, and are a reinterpretation of dreamlike sensations that cross over into surreal and imaginative atmospheres, while keeping his roots firmly planted in the tradition of Venetian mask-makers.

The association combines its colourful costumes with moments of dance and entertainment, mostly to the famous notes of the Rondò Veneziano!
