Join this tour and discover the secret workshop of the Venetian puppets in Santa Fosca in Venice. Here your guide will reveal the story of a Venetian artisan who made bizarre and odd puppets for 27 years.
You could admire his workshop, a surreal and dreamlike kingdom made of puppets located on the first floor of an old Venetian palace.
During this visit, you will learn how to create traditional puppets using natural materials: puppets bodies are all made of wood; feet, head, and hands are shaped with a wooden paste and hand-painted.
All dresses and costumes were designed and sewed by his sister, taking inspiration from traditional Venetian Carnival costumes. It takes up to 15 days to create a puppet!
