A traveler from the other side of the world strolled through the city of Venice, captivated by its charm. Suddenly, he stumbled upon the imposing walls of the Palazzo delle Prigioni. He spotted a partially open door and peered inside. Among the unfinished masks and vibrant colors, he met Beatrice, a Venetian mask artisan, whose welcoming smile and enchanting artistry immediately captivated him. Beatrice began to share with him the secret of Venetian mask-making. She explained that each mask had a hidden story, a silent narrative of emotions and mysteries. He was fascinated and immediately started his own creation, blending colors, glitter, and emotions. When he finally worn his mask, something magical happened.
