Brand created by the homonymous founder , Monya Grana, daughter and granddaughter of entrepreneurs . The passion for fashion and love for his homeland , Sicily, magical land of the Viceroys and the Gattopardo , led her to create something truly unique: the "ladies Bags", bags of daily elegance, caskets containing all gold culture.
"The adventure was born from my personal need" confesses Monya Grana, "that is, by necessity in my constant trips to have with me a piece of my land, my heritage, of which I had a lot of melancholy. So I decided to make something that you can take with me, an accessory that would contain all the culture and charm of my Sicily, to no longer feel so far away from home and at the same time to let the world know the beauty of my country."
The masks represented are not therefore the result of invention but are taken from real faces baroque engraved on the balconies of nobility. Select from hundreds of different types and partially softened in the features, once chosen, is attributed to each of them their own meaning, its symbol, the soul of the mask that seems to make it come alive, real."As a child, when my grandfather took me by the hand through the streets of the center, I was afraid of these grotesque faces, animalistic"
Monya confides, "I saw them in their expressions so real that I felt their prey while I passed under. But the more they feared, most intrigued me more and I fell in love ... "
Dating back to the seventeenth century, the masks are typically Baroque style ornaments. Born from the imagination of artists and stonemasons of undoubted talent who through their imagination of popular culture gave several allegorical messages to their creations.

They therefore represent the implementation of human fears, such as fear of the unknown or the fight against evil, which is the face of the company on the uncertainty of life. Their function? To remove or undo negative influence.
