A unique and singular tradition: the extraordinary masks of the bei and brut, the ciocia, the carlisep. Symbolic characters that have spanned the centuries.
In Schignano, young and old await the carnival as early as January 5, a time of confirming social relations in a village in the shadow of Sasso Gordona that has experienced centuries of emigration.
BUT WATCH THIS VIDEO THAT IS WORTH MORE THAN ANY DESCRIPTION
We will set off on foot from Argegno to slowly enter the atmosphere of the village ready for carnival, perhaps strange pealings will greet us, perhaps fleeting apparitions, perhaps someone will run toward us….
We then eat what we have stowed in our backpacks ( if you bring your own glass a bottle of wine I will bring it) while waiting for the big parade at 2 p.m., at the end of which we walk back to Argegno.
OPERATIONAL INFORMATION: given the scarcity of parking in Argegno we meet at 9:30 a.m. at the parking lot of the GRAN MERCATO supermarket (bar side) in Tavernola di Como
