Viareggio means above all Carnevale: four weeks of folly in which tourists from all over Italy come to admire the most famous allegorical floats in the world. Each year on the four consecutive Sundays before Lent, floats parade up and down the boardwalk boasting enormous papier mache that satirize current socio-political events, those in show business and politicians in a half satirical, half artisan tradition. At the end of the parade, the party continues with festivals in various neighbourhoods during which streets close to traffic and fill with masks, music and dancing.
