Historical Carnival of Ivrea

The Carnival of Ivrea is a historical event with a strong symbolic value, one of the most important carnival events in Italy.
Characterized by its strong link with medieval traditions, the Carnival of Ivrea guarantees three days of pure folklore and fun.

THE BATTLE OF ORANGES - The battle of oranges is the most spectacular moment of the Carnival. Based on unwritten rules but shared by the participants, the battle is based on a role-playing game (the participants are divided into nine teams) and is a great example of civilization. All oranges used are not intended for sale.
