Carnival Monday

The Historical Carnival of Ivrea
Moments
Carnival Monday

On Monday morning, the Sostituto Gran Cancelliere (Substitute Great Chancellor) reads the ceremony records and the newlyweds, armed with a pickaxe and a shovel, both hit the ground on the exact spot of the ‘Scarlo’ (heather and juniper pole) while all the people say out loud the ritual formula: ‘As pianta ‘l pic a l’uso antic’.

The day continues with the second day of the Orange Battle, where the people start the deployment of the carri da getto (Throwing Carts). After that, the Corteo Storico (Historical Procession) march kicks off.
