Carnival of Acireale

The Carnival of Acireale grew up amid the splendor of architecture that was the setting for the unfolding of the parades of allegorical floats grottechi, those adorned with flowers and masked groups. So for three centuries, from the end of '600, a period in which the city, freed from vassals, became state property of the Aragonese. In 700 the Carnival becomes folklore, thanks to performances by commoners who improvise verses in dialect races.

The nineteenth century refines the events with parades refined "landeaus" and equipment in costume, fun opportunities for the people and the local nobility.

Today the carnival is an important opportunity to promote tourism and entertainment, organized according to the needs of modern users.
