The Historic Carnival of the city of Ivrea is back! With its characters and its unquestioned protagonist, the Mugnaia (miller), loved by the people, symbol of revolt and freedom by the oppressor. Myths and legends blend magically with history and reflect on the faces of Alfieri (bishops), Vivandiere (sutlers), Cavallanti (horsemen), in the ancient melodies of Pifferi (pipers), in the passion of aranceri fighting the famous Battle of the Oranges.
Ideas and suggestions personally tailored for you for cultural and gastronomic tours of one or more days!
