This Capitano Dritto Gold is hand decorated in Venice, Italy using the traditional mask making methods. Our Macherra (Venetian mask makers) start with a beautiful design in mind and decorate using traditional methods to create a dazzling long nose masquerade mask for you.
Originally, the long nose mask fashion started during the days of the black plague. Doctors would fashion masks using paper maché and then stuff the nose with gauze and other herbs to 1) override the smell of death and decay and 2) they thought that they wouldn't catch the plague. It was only later that they realized that the fleas were spreading the plague.
