Castelnovo di Sotto Carnival. 132nd edition

in the old town centre

Castelnovo di Sotto (RE)

The Castelnovo di Sotto Carnival, the most important in the province of Reggio Emilia, is characterized by traditional parades with carnival floats and masked bands.

It derives from the culture and civilization of the agricultural world, and its typical mask is the "Castlein".

The creation of paper-pulp carnival floats is a true art form, on which the local artisans work all year.
