THIS AN EXCELLENT QUALITY ITALIAN MADE BY THE CRAFTSEMEN OF GRAZIANO VIALE IN SARDINIA (ITALY) NEW NEVER USED

Between past and present, magic and religion, drama and comedy, the orgins of masks date back to millenia ago, and are rooted in humans´ special desire to change their identies and plunge into a fantasy world. Therefore, a mask exhibit can be a fascinating instrument for tracing the evolution of epochs and peoples - an ideal mirror reflecting cultures and traditions. GRAZIANO VIALE has researched and studied the evolution of masks in the Mediterranean culture for many years. He was born in Northern Italy, but has been living in Sardinia for several years, conducting a specific research on Phoenician-Punic ritual masks as well as traditional Sardinian masks, benefitting from fertile international contacts covering all art forms, and especially the European theater - both classical and avant-garde. By now a much sought-after guest at various international festivals - including Avignon, Nancy, Bremen, Goslar, and Gerona - Viale is presently co-operating with Italian theatrical groups (Verona, Como, Belluno, Forlì...), and also developing cultural initiatives in Italian schools through seminars and workshops on the history and manufacture of leather masks.

Questions from other members : SARDINIA MASK MASKE MASCHERA TEATRO MASQUE : Question & Answer Answered On Q: Hello. I teach Theatre at a small university in Pennsylvania in the USA. I have long loved the Commedia characters and their impact on other Theatrical forms of the period. On a trip to Venice 20 years ago, I purchased a Brighella Mask that I cherish and have often used in my classes. I would love to know about purchasing more Commedia Character Masks as well as traditional Greek Masks for both Tragedy and Comedy performances. Do you have set Masks you make and sell? Or, do you make and sell Masks to order? I have stumbled upon your ebay Web Site at the end of my day and I will look at it more carefully over the next few days. I hope there is a way I can purchase some of your very beautiful Masks and maybe have a chance to discuss the use of Masks in both the Commedia and the Traditional Greek Theatres. Thank you. Andy.
