Mondonovo is not simply, as its name suggests, the new world. In the Venetian sense of the word, it refers to a type of internal floodlight, used by the Chinese for creating shadows, the inspiration behind Guerrino Lovato's concept for this shop. The specialty here is papier-mâché masks made by hand. The origins are as much in the Commedia dell'Arte as in Lovato's imagination. Some of the masks used in the film Eyes Wide Shut were made here. Lovato is also involved in painting, sculpture, set-design, iconography and history of art.
