Carnevale

Carnevale in Italy, known in the U.S. as carnival or mardi gras, takes place in the weeks leading up to Easter. Think of Carnevale in Italy as a big final party before Ash Wednesday, the restrictions of Lent, and the more pious observances of Easter.

Italy celebrates Carnevale with a huge winter festival marked by parades, masquerade balls, entertainment, music, and parties. Children throw confetti at each other, and sometimes flour and raw eggs. Mischief and pranks are common during Carnevale in Italy, hence the saying "a Carnevale ogni scherzo vale," which means "anything goes at Carnevale".
