The Historical Carnival of Ivrea
Moments
Fat Saturday

On Saturday the Carnival celebration is in the thick of things: the Vezzosa Mugnaia (Miller’s daughter) and her Scorta d’Onore (Honorable Entourage) enter the scene. This is one of the most exciting moments of the Carnival, held at the Municipal Palace loggia. Right after that, the Corteo Storico (Historical Procession) kicks off, with the participation of the Mugnaia. The aranceri (Orange Throwers) join in at Lungo Dora (Dora riverfront), while the aranceri parties light up the city squares.
