A 137-year old historical carnival

Where: via 24 Maggio - 40018 San Pietro in Casale (BO)

When: February 11 and 18, 2018

 

 

The historical Carnival of San Pietro in Casale allows people to go to the Court of King Sandròn Spaviròn, the stock comic character reigning over this Carnival since 1871. On both Sundays the town streets are covered with masked carnival parades and funny allegoric floats. Visitors can have refreshments with typical local food and wine. 

 

On the second Sunday (February 18) at 8PM, after his triumphal entry into the historical centre of the town, King Sandròn Spaviròn reads his will to the assembled crowd and usually makes everybody laugh because of its biting satire. At the end of the reading, a puppet representing the Carnival is set on fire, according to tradition.

 

In case of bad weather the event may be postponed to February 25.

 

 

The event is a great occasion to visit San Pietro in Casale, whose beautiful historical centre, with its Bolognese-style porticoes and elegant ancient buildings, strikes you entering the town.
