Carnival, this year, will start with the Fat Thursday the 28th of February, ending with the Shrove Tuesday the 5th of March. There are lot of celebrations in Italy and the most popular are the ones in Venice that, with the Angel’s Fly, kick off to masks, music and parties all around the lagoon.
Another event really nice and maybe the older historically speaking goes on in Verona: the famous “Bacanal del Gnoco”. In addition to the staging of the Carnival’s Village for all the weekend, the festival will reach the top with the “Venerdì Gnocolar”, that this year will be on the 1st of March, with a carnival float, music and amusement for all the ages.
The Bacanal del Gnoco sees its lineages in the XVI century when, following floods and incursions by the Lanzichenecchi, people found themselves in a unprecedented famine and they assaulted bakeries. Few citizens decided to calm down the revolt refreshing, paying by themselves, poorest people of the quarter, the so named “sansenati”. Tradition tells that in those magnanimous citizens there was even the Da Vinco, named “teacher and restorer” of the Baccanale del Gnocco.
