Since this Sunday February 27 will be the first of the Carnival parades here in Vetralla, here is the story I wrote about last year's parade which featured the Simpsons and some satirical floats about Italian politics.
Little has changed in a year, so take a look at
Vetralla’s Carnevale – ItalianNotebook.com
For the entire Carnivale program check http://www.prolocovetralla.it/Pro-Loco/programmacarnevale2011.htm
The parade starts at 3 p.m. and includes giant floats and hundreds of costumed revelers . If you want to come earlier to explore the picturesque medieval streets and have lunch, I recommend La Lanterna a family-run trattoria right in the historic center on the parade route.
