Three days of celebration, from reading the announcement to the opening of the taverns at Friday's flagship show, to the wonderful historic procession on Saturday, Sundays and Sundays. It starts on Friday with the tavern day (opening and exchanging gifts between the four doors) and the Bandwriters. Saturday is the day of the historic procession, preceded by the evidence of the jugglers who will face the games and the Balestrieri group. And so it comes to Sunday, dedicated in the morning to the technical part of the races (weighing the carts, drawings for race orders, delivery of jugglers' names) after which each door retires to its tavern. Consumed lunch and screaming rituals, every door in the procession returns to the big square for the challenge: the race begins. At the end of the races the winning door will burn the Bastola, the ancient enemy witch of Gualdo. Having spent the moments of disappointment and discomfort for the defeated doors, the city will be a great party throughout the night.

Who has not received or given a flower in life?
A flower means scent, color, smile, weeping, emotion, remember!
How many moments of our lives are linked and stressed by these beautiful and fragile creatures of nature!
Looking at the customs of the various peoples, we understand how much the language of flowers is interpreted differently in the various civilizations.
But in 1990, two French-style chefs, Michel Bras and Marc Veyrat, began experimenting with flowers in their kitchen as an expression of their culinary philosophy of engaging with nature. Since then, the flowers have taken hold in the high spheres of the dining world.
Ferran Adrià was one of the first to use elderberry flowers and borage flowers ...
Boccaccesca, always in search of the beautiful and good in the kitchen, could not overlook the edulent flowers, now used by the greatest chefs of the moment in their dishes, not just as decoration but also as a real dish.
Boccaccesca 2017 will be inspired by the perfume, the color and the flavor of the flowers!

Historical Carnival of Ivrea

To March 1, 2017

Venue :- Italy - Piedmont - Ivrea (CN)
What is Carnival
The Historical Carnival of Ivrea is a unique Italian event of international importance, as acknowledged in the communication by the President of the Council of Ministers of 27.09.1956 (Sheet No. 02999/894 File 02999/894.). A “dream” that is repeated every year, bringing, history, tradition, spectacle, excitement and solemn ideals to the streets and squares of the town of Ivrea. In this event history and legend mingle to create a spectacular sequence crossing the centuries.
The spirit of Carnival lives through the re-enactment of the city’s liberation from tyranny dating back to Medieval times: a baron who starved the city was driven away thanks to a miller’s daughter who rebelled against the “ jus primae noctis” and roused the people to revolt. In this commemoration every year the new version of the Carnival is celebrated as Festival involving the whole town, during which the community of Ivrea can show its self-determination.
The heroine of Carnival is the Miller’s daughter (Mugnaia), and at her side the General (Generale), who since the early 1800s has had the task of assuring the smooth running of the event, along with his Napoleonic General Staff ( Stato Maggiore), composed of brave officers (Ufficiali) on horseback and pretty sutlers (Vivandiere) .
Completing the gallery of historical figures are the Assistant Grand Chancellor (Sostituto Gran Cancelliere), Magnifico Podestà guarantor of freedom in the city, the parade with the Flags of the Parishes (Bandiere dei Rioni) represented by the Abbà and the Pipes and Drums (Pifferi e Tamburi).
To fill the city with colour and scents, there is then the famous, spectacular Battle of the Oranges, in which the fighters identify strongly with the people’s rebellion against tyranny.
In the battle the people, represented by orange throwers on foot without any protection, pelt oranges at the feudal lord’s army, personified by others throwing oranges from horse-drawn carts, who wear protective masks reminiscent of ancient armour.
In order to show their involvement in the event, from the Thursday before Lent all townspeople and visitors who take to the streets wear the “Phrygian cap” (“Berretto Frigio”), a red stocking-like hat that shows their support for revolt and therefore their aspiration to freedom, as it was for the heroes of the French Revolution.
