venetian_maskWhile we all love to eat around the World Showcase, one of the other ways to learn of a country and its culture is through its artisans.

Join Lou Mongello as he enters the Italy pavilion to talk with Giorgio Iurcotta, a mask artist from Venice. Giorgio tells the history of the masks, a bit on how they are made and even the story behind some of these masks. It is a fascinating look at wearable art.
