Ivrea (Piedmont)

Ivrea is a town of the Metropolitan City of Turin, in the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy. Situated on the road leading to the Aosta Valley, it straddles the Dora Baltea and is regarded as the centre of the Canavese area. One of the main festivals in Ivrea is the Carnival. The core celebration of Ivrea Carnival centers around the epic Battle of the Oranges. This involves thousands of townspeople, divided into nine on-the-ground teams who throw oranges at card-based teams during the last three carnival days: Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. The carnival takes place 40 days before Easter and ends on the night of "Fat Tuesday" with a solemn ceremony that involves a funeral commemorating the concluded festival.
