A mask typically of the fairer sex, particularly appreciated by men for its characteristic of not allowing the wearer to speak. What pleased the women, however, was certainly the aura of mystery and the anonymity that it granted.

This mask, like the Bautta, is among the disguises which allowed those who wore them to remain anonymous.

The Moretta consists of a black oval-shaped mask that could be made of various fabrics such as velvet, canvas or cardboard, intended for female faces and particularly appreciated by younger women who, by holding a specific hook between their teeth, could remain anonymous (and silent) at public gatherings, on the street or in bars.

A different version of this disguise includes a short handle that was held by the girl, allowing her to speak freely and reveal herself when desired.
