SCIACCA CARNIVAL PARADE 2015  MAXIMUM CARD
Country: ITALY
Condition: SCIACCA CARNIVAL PARADE 2015 MAXIMUM CARD
Description: CARNIVAL TIME: Italy - the cradle of Carnival [Carne vale in Latin = farewell to meat (because of impending Lent)] - issued two € 0.80 most captivating stamps on 5 February 2015 to salute the colourful carnivals of Sciacca (Sicily) and Putignano (Apulia). Putignano’s celebrations have reached their 621st edition: the stamp depicts Shakespeare’s vane and obese knight known universally as Falstaff surrounded by folkloric masks and at top right, Farinella, the hero of the festivities whose name comes from a local dish made with legumes flour (farina). Activities and magnificent parades take place throughout January until Mardi Gras when, as the countdown to midnight takes place, an avalanche of mouthwatering maccheroni cheers the revellers as Lent steps in. The multi-centenarian carnival of Sciacca, near Agrigento, dates back to 1616. The week before Lent is highlighted by picturesque parades with floats, troupes, dancers, and masqueraders. The stamp depicts the popular impersonation of the event, the unexpectedly agile Peppe Nappa – a colourful and generous glutton, and the monarch of the local carnival. His float distributes free grilled sausages and orange juice during the last parade on Mardi Gras bringing the celebrations to an end with Peppe’s wagon set on fire.
