Last week we had three days off for Carnevale. It is a winter festival usually celebrated in February, till the day before Ash Wednesday, when Lent begins. Besides its celebration in Venice, famous worldwide, it is celebrated with parades in other Italian towns. Big charts representing different characters or popular stories can be seen through the streets, people wear fancy dresses and masks and enjoy standing on the charts, or dancing to their music or walking and watching around, throwing confetti at people passing by.
Georg and some of his friends were here last year and took part in the local parade! Here they are:
