Commedia Dell’Arte Masks by Tessa Wallis

Commedia Dell’Arte is a form of theatre first performed in the streets of Italy in the 15th century. It’s popularity was contagious spreading throughout Europe, Eastern Bloc countries and across the Channel to England where it was modified into “Punch and Judy” puppet theatre. Commedia troupes are carrying on the tradition in the 21st Century.
