Carnival is celebrated enthusiastically thoughout Italy, and Florence is no exception. During the street procession, you'll see costumes from all around the world. Festivities incorporate a cosmopolitan element, giving Carnival in Florence its truly unique character. Young and old dress up in a glorious array of costumes for the event. The colourful procession leaves from Piazza Ognissanti and Piazza della Signora. Keep an eye out for Arlecchino the Harlequin. An important role is reserved for him.
