Carnevale di Follonica
Jan 31 all-day
Carnevale di Follonica
Follonica welcomes Carnevale with three weekends-worth of float parades. I was at the first parade this year as it exploded onto Follonica's streets. The floats are simply magnificent, simply breathtaking. They're each designed by a different precinct in the city and headed by a group of dancing teens and children. Tickets are €3.
Carnevale di Massa Marittima
Jan 31 – Feb 14 all-day
Carnevale di Massa Marittima @ Massa Marittima | Toscana | Italy
Massa Marittima celebrates Carnevale with over the top costumes, amazing live music and plenty of confetti! It's inspired by Venice and as close as you'll get to that amazing festival here in Tuscany.
Carnevaletto da 3 Soldi @ Orbetello
Jan 31 – Feb 14 all-day
Orbetello puts on a sophisticated celebration with a bunch of masked parades by the laguna on 31 Jan, 7 Feb, 9 Feb and 14 Feb. The competition has been held since the 1950s with categories for each age group. These aren't shop bought costumes, but really elegant pieces. This year's inspiration is fairytales with a particular nod to Alice in Wonderland. Put the 9 Feb parade in your calendar. It's a nighttime event and promises to be pretty impressive.
Carnevape di Pitigliano
Jan 31 – Feb 14 all-day
Carnevape di Pitigliano @ Castiglione della Pescaia | Toscana | Italy
Hard to put this into words. It's pretty much your stock standard Carnevale parade but instead of floats, these works of art are built on the back of apes - Italy's signature three-wheeled scooters. Check it out for some truly amazing sights and the obligatory kids in costumes covering everything within reach in silly string.

Rito dello Stollo e Focarazza @ Santa Caterina
Nov 24 @ 20:00
  22371_1Winter's most incredible and evocative event is held in a small mountain town in Monte Amiata. Wrap up and be prepared to stay up until midnight to see this spectacular demonstration of fire and tradition. On the night of the festival, a wooden pole is placed in a fire and burnt. The men of the town then pull it out of the still smoldering fire and race to return it to their district of the city. The first person to arrive home with the stollo wins.
