The masks have an almost inexplicable power. Between past and present, magic and religion, drama and comedy, they represent the metamorphosis that comes with the possibility of changing faces.
They have always been part of the history of mankind as a magic instrument, as a medium to reach divinity and they have always been considered a sacred ritual object.
The origins have been lost over time and are linked to the desire of mankind to change identity and plunge into fantasy.
Near the archaeological area of Tharros, 50m from the sea, this workshop dedicated to the sense of touch will allow you to make your own leather mask, guided by the hands of an expert craftsman.
The archaeological area is currently an open-air museum and a perfect spot to immerse in a world of history and traditions.
The experience is accompanied by a small tasting of typical local products.
The offer includes:
- Introduction to the world of masks and materials
- Workshop of leather masks – about 2h
- Creation of a leather mask to take with you as a souvenir
- Materials and necessary equipment
- Small tasting of local products
