It’s Carnival in Italy!
The most famous carnivals of Italy are those held in Venice and Viareggio.
The carnival in Venice was first recorded in 1268.
Masks have always been a central feature of the Venetian carnival; traditionally people were allowed to wear them till midnight of Shrove Tuesday.
The Carnival of Viareggio is one of the most famous in Italy: it lasts a month with night and day celebrations, floats, parades, district celebrations, masked dances and other shows.
In Milan the Carnival lasts four more days, ending on the Saturday after Ash Wednesday, because of the Ambrosian rite; it is thus referred to as Carnevale Ambrosiano ("Ambrosian Carnival").
Children dress up and take part to parades with confetti and colored paper stripes.
