Carnevale di Schignano

Schignano, a small town in Val d’Intelvi, is known for its ancient Carnival that occurs annually for Mardi Gras.

The masks are made up of typical local characters: the bèi (beautiful), the brùt (ugly), the ciocia (the wife of the beautiful), the sapeur (which opens the parade) , the sigurtà (which rapresents the authority) and carlisepp

The Carnival is characteristic and famous because all the masks and the costumes are hand-made.
