Carnevale di Aliano
Cupa Cupa, a musical instrument

During this Carnival in the streets of Aliano, a small town of Basilicata classified among the “Authentic villages of Italy”, wander 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 parades also masks of the neighbouring villages participate.
As any traditional feast, this is a great opportunity to taste some typical local food.
