The Museum of Mediterranean Masks evolved with the intention of creating a cultural link between the cultural universe of the small town of Mamoiada, which is known throughout the world for its traditional masks, the "Mamuthones" and "Issohadores", and other Mediterranean areas, which display a similar history and culture through their masks and Carnival Celebration.
The tour of the museum begins with a multivision scene which, through a sequence of projected images, various texts, recordings and background music, introduces the visitor to the festival of Carnival and the inhabitants of Mamoiada, whilst also giving an account of different interpretations, over the years, of the origins and function of the "Mamuthones ". You are then transported to another scene, which illustrates a series of Sardinian and Mediterranean masks. One wing of the room is made up of two large windows, which open out on to a view of the town, like the eyes of a mask,costumed figures of the "Mamuthones", "Issohadore" "Boes", "Merdules", "Thurpu" are shown. In the other wing traditional Mediterranean area masks (Greek, Croatia, Slovenia) are kept.

The visit takes about 1 hour

Opening time: Tuesday to Sunday 9.00-13.00, 15.00-19.00
