The highlight of the Carnival of Schignano is staged on Saturday, March 2 and Tuesday, March 5. It is in this double circumstance that, for years, tourists, students and scholars from all over the world flock to attend this incredible journey in the traditions and memories of an entire community.
During the final parade, the "of Shrove Tuesday", will be staged the traditional and awaited "escape of Carlisepp". The puppet that personifies the Carnival, will then be promptly recaptured and burned at the stake, at the end of the drumming evening of dances and dishes of typical cuisine that will be consumed at the local gym.
During the parades the local associations intervene with stalls and stands to let guests taste the traditional and tasty local dishes.
