The Carnival

The origins of Carnival date back to the first years of the twelth century. The festival, prepared a lot of months in advance, represents a moment of amusement and aggregation for the whole town.
The most characteristic feature of carnival is its popularity in fact, many people coming from the near towns don’t miss the festive climate. The construction of the allegorical paper floats begins in the months preceding the feast thanks to the active cooperation of the builders.
Carnival starts on Thursday before Lent with the symbolic delivery of the keys of the city into the hands of the king of Carnival: Peppi Nappa.
The music, the joy, and the masks take possession of the town. The climax of the popular happening is the allegorical float show from Saturday and going on till Tuesday.
The floats moving through the roads of the town centre cheer up the atmosphere with their hymns.
The masked groups, with their choreographies invite all the people to dance and enjoy the feast. The parade lasts all night and it culminates with the performance of satirical prompt copies in the main square.
The feast finishes on late Tuesday night with Peppe Nappa’s stake. All the whistles and hammers are thrown in the fire and all the euphoria of the previous days burns with the king.
