Un Carnevale Fiorentino

RE Blog from our guest blogger:

You know its carnevale in Florence when every time you wander around the city center you find tiny pieces of colored confetti scattered in the streets.

The Italians throw these brightly colored streamers and little pieces of wrapped candy in the crowds from the colorful, playful floats that they painstakingly prepare. Though many might think that this is just a type of Halloween in February they would be mistaken, because the outfits that are selected normally have nothing to do with warding off the evil spirits as in the tradition for All Hallow’s Eve. In fact when you mention Carnival, the image of scantily dressed Brazilians come to mind or maybe even the artistic and mysterious figures from Venice. However, for many regions it is simply a moment where the young and old are encouraged to have fun, laugh and be playful behind the anonymity of a mask.
