TESTAMENTO DI " LU NANNU" PER CARNEVALE

 
Carnival
Moments which greatly involve the citizens of the city are the traditional Carnevale (Mardi Gras) parades: wagons and groups of people in costume animate the streets of the city, in particular the wagon of the Nannu and the Nanna. On the evening of the third day, in piazza Garibaldi the testamentu di lu nannu, is read during which, in ironic and often licentious style, well known people and important recent events are held up to ridicule. The evening concludes with the abbruciatina di li nanni, that is the setting on fire of two puppets which symbolise, with the ending of winter the burning of misfortunes, sins and pains.
In March, traditional “altars” of San Giuseppe (Saint Joseph) are set up, while at Easter, the so-called “campanari” which are short crust patries, and painted hard-boiled eggs are made.
