2019 CARNIVAL OF VIAREGGIO

CARNIVAL OF VIAREGGIO

Great Carnival parades

Starting from 09 February

Viareggio, the capital of the Italian Carnival, gives its annual appointment to the Five Big Parades in the main street facing the sea.

For a month, Viareggio trasforms itself into the City of Fun : you will fnd huge Carnival floats, night parties, great fireworks, theatre reviews, gastronomic events and famous sport events.

The peculiarity of this Carnival consists of giant, allegorical papier-maché floats – the biggest ones weighing about forty tons – and expresses today the old knowledge that goes back to the ancient ‘trionfi’ (war-victory feastings) of the Renaissance.
