The Historic Carnival of Ivrea
The Carnival A to Z
Scorta d’Onore della Mugnaia – Miller’s daughter’s Escort of Honour
A recent addition to the carnival, the escort replaced bodyguards accompanying Violetta on her official duties, giving the correct historical collocation to the group, in fitting with the 19th century scenario that is the backcloth for the whole event.
The uniform worn by the group, officially the Reggimento Primo Tricolore Historical Group, was one of the first in the Italian army to appear at the times of the Cisalpine Republic, with a black hat swathed in red, green jacket and trousers and shoes covered with white gaiters.
