Please read the prior Venetian Cat - Venice Blog posts for the rest of the story:
The top prize went to Enzo Sindoca for his mask, Principessa per un giorno, or Princess for a Day. Sindoca is a professional mask-maker from Mira, a town outside Venice. The mask was created from one unique piece of leather.

The word "grana" or "grain" is slang for money in Italian, and the mask is a social commentary on how mankind has become more awed by the power of money than by the power of nature that feeds us.
Congratulations to all!
