February 2021. Folklore and tradition at the 68th Pontecorvo Carnival, Central Italy
The main event of the Pontecorvo Carnival is the unmissable parade with floats and masked groups.

The event’s mascots are Burlicchio (Pontecorvo Carnival’s official Mask), the Princess, who represents the winner of the pageant and who’s symbolically given the keys to the city, and the “Mazzamaveri”, allegorical depiction of the Saracens who invaded the country in the 10th century.
