Battaglia delle Arance
For three days the northern town of Ivrea, which is in the province of Turin, Piedmont, turns orange as they celebrate the Battaglia delle Arance (Battle of the Oranges). This is just one of the many festivals that takes place throughout Italy during Carnevale, which marks the beginning of the Lenten season. What makes this festival just a bit crazier than the other celebrations throughout Italy is that the people literally throw oranges at each other.

La Zinghenésta
Carnevale is a magical time in Italy. The entire country celebrates this long-standing tradition that dates back to the Middle Ages. Towns all over Italy celebrate this event in their own unique way. The comune of Canale d’Agordo in the province of Belluno within the Veneto region is no different as they celebrate La Zinghenésta.
