  • Passion, Envy and Innocence
    planted at the fringe of Carnevale
    protected, anonymous and secure in the Masquerade

    knowing the local customs, they are reluctant to expose themselves
    tradition forbids the casual glance, the chance encounter in real time

    the masks suggest their eyes are open wide
    but without ears they cannot hear our invitation to enter
    and pursed lips suggest a distrust and unwillingness to reveal their true identities

    Start a new tradition, commit to come in
    but leave your mask in the storefront window
