The typical masks of the Carnival are the so-called “cornute” Masks, goofy figures that evocate demonic creatures with colorful big hats, who walk in the village streets along the sound of accordions and cupa cupa, and so arising an improvised comedy called “Fras”,

During Aliano’s Carnival also masks of the neighbouring villages participate in the parades
