Viterbo, thousands on the streets for the off-season carnival – News

The event originally scheduled for last Saturday was postponed to this afternoon due to bad weather. At 3.30 pm the multicolored parade, made up of over 1000 participants divided into 19 thematic groups, after starting from Porta Romana, crossed the historic center of the city on a route which, winding through Via Garibaldi, Via Cavour, Piazza del Plebiscito and Via Marconi, ended in Theater Square.


Here the multitude of masks gathered under the stage on which the mayor Chiara Frontini and the organizer of the event Lucio Matteucci stood.


And it is precisely to the latter that the tradition of the carnival parade, after years of oblivion, has been brought back to life for a few years, giving back to the city a tradition that has its roots back to the year 1100.


In fact, Francesco Orioli himself, a famous physicist and philosopher of the late 18th century, speaks in one of his writings about the first edition of the Viterbo carnival, placing it precisely in that period.


“Thanks to everyone who spoke today – said Frontini from the stage – any demonstration cannot succeed without the citizens, and today many of you are here to make this day of fun even more beautiful.”
