FEBRUARY /MARCH 2016: The Carnival of Viareggio

VIAREGGIO

The popular seaside town of Viareggio is situated on the Tuscany coast. Viareggio and the resorts "Torre del Lago Puccini", "Lido di Camaiore", "Marina di Pietrasanta" makeup about 20 kilometers of the Versilian Riviera (or Riviera della Versilia).
Viareggio has most of the usual attractions of a typical Italian seaside resort.
The town's symbol, heart of its history, is the “Torre Matilde”, built by the Senate of Lucca in 1550. In 1601 Viareggio, that was already a township, was declared a free port, and in 1617 it became the chieftown in the Vicaria del Litorale (the coastal viacariate).
The birth of the first bathing establishment dates back to 1823. We owe the building of Viale dei Tigli to Maria Borbone, through which she could reach the centre, leaving from her villa situated in the East pinewood. In fact, the touristic activity began in Viareggio right in this period. Many men of culture stopped for a time in this area: the poet Percy B.Shelley, Lord Byron, Manzoni, Puccini and D'Annunzio.
The city is 23.76 miles to Pisa, 17.67 miles to Massa, 29.87 miles to Livorno, and 59.5 miles to Firenze.
The 3 Km modern promenade, where the parade takes place, is one of the focal point of the city, characterized by shops, cafes, refreshment points and Liberty style buildings.
Viareggio is now a tourist seaside resort with beaches and hotels boast ancient tradition.

THE CARNIVAL

The first parade of carriages decorated for the holiday is dated February 24, 1873, the day of Mardi Gras. The idea of ​​a parade to celebrate the Carnival has blossomed among the young people of Viareggio well then who frequented the cafe Casino.
The fame of the Course Masked Viareggio has grown hand in hand with the growth in the size of the floats. At the end of the century appeared in parade wagons triumphal monuments built of wood, plaster and jute, shaped by local sculptors and set up by carpenters and blacksmiths who worked in shipyards in the Dock. Thanks to the transfer of the circuit of the shows from the Via Regia to the Promenade, at the beginning of the twentieth century, the spectacle of the Carnival of Viareggio was able to enjoy an extraordinary stage, how spacious it stimulated the imagination and creativity of the Masters tank drivers.
 
 
In 1930, Uberto Bonetti, a painter and graphic futuristic devised Burlamacco: the mask symbol of Viareggio, that, in the manifesto of 1931, against the background of the docks stretched the sea, appeared in the company of Ondina, wetting symbol of the holiday season. Inspired by the masks of the Commedia dell'Arte and drawing it into a futuristic, Bonetti would be summarized in the mask the two highlights of life in the city of Viareggio: the summer (with the typical white and red umbrellas on the beaches in the thirties) and the Carnival.
 
 
Today Viareggio Carnival is a spectacular event among the most beautiful and grandiose of the world and fills an entire month of celebrations day and night, with parades of floats mammoth, local parties, masked balls and festivals of all kinds.
