Castelnovo di Sotto Carnival

Parades of giant carnival floats, masked bands, music, sport and gastronomic events. In the town centre. 135th edition.

February 2, 9, 16, 23, 2020

The Castelnovo di Sotto Carnival, the most important in the province of Reggio Emilia, is characterized by traditional parades with carnival floats and masked bands. It derives from the culture and civilization of the agricultural world, and its typical mask is the "Castlein".

The creation of paper-pulp carnival floats is a true art form, on which the local artisans work all year.

The event is an opportunity to visit neighbouring villages, the Carnival Mask Museum, and also to taste the local typical specialities.
