The Carnival of Viareggio! From 16 to 23 February and 1-4-8 March

The idea to celebrate the Carnival of Viareggio bloom in 1873, when the first parade of decorated carriages born in the historic Via Regia, in the heart of the old city.

In 1930, the painter and graphic futurist Umberto Bonetti designed the mask that is still the symbol of the carnival, the Burlamacco.

After the Second World War, the carnival was revived and was chosen as the first external live event from the RAI.

Today, on Mardi Gras, the carnival returns as protagonist on the national tv “RaiTre” with its annual parade of allegorical floats.
