For 146 years, Viareggio is the Italian capital of Carnival and papier-mâché floats. For 5 weekends the city of Versilia comes alive, including parades, night parties, fireworks, theatrical reviews and gastronomic events. An event of international renown that has always been surprising, making people think and laugh about the contemporary world.
All starts with three cannon shots. The party begins and the streets are filled with a thousand colored masks. Each edition reserves surprises and twists involving everyone, young and old, since 1873.
The real tank masters of papier-mâché are ready to show their creations on the Viareggio promenade during the five long weekends from 9 February to 5 March.
