From our facility you will be able to attend numerous carnivals: from the closest, such as the one in Cento, to the most distant, such as the one in Venice; whatever the destination, fun is guaranteed!
The Cento Carnival, referred to as the “Carnival of Europe,” features mammoth floats with costumed figures.
As the website*(https://www.carnevalecento.com) reports, the Carnival of Cento has been known since the 1600s thanks to some frescoes by the famous Cento painter Gian Francesco Barbieri known as “Guercino.” In the early 1900s, the Centesi thought of creating their own king to symbolize the Centese carnival. This character was to represent the conscience of his fellow citizens. Thus was born Tasi, Luigi Tasini, who at one time actually existed and was esteemed.
Ivano Manservisi, the patron, took over the reins of the Carnival in 1990, taking it by leaps and bounds, recovering the enthusiasm that had slumbered, until he took it to international heights, thanks in part to its twinning with the Carnival of Rio de Janeiro, the most famous in the world.
The Venice Carnival (website: https://www.carnevale.venezia.it) is the carnival par excellence: fine masks, exquisite costumes and traditional parades take the spectator into a magical world.
Others include the carnival of Comacchio and the carnival of Busseto, as well as that of Finale Emilia and San Pietro in casale.
