Viareggio (Tuscany)

Viareggio is a city in northern Tuscany, Italy, on the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea. It is known as a seaside resort as well as being the home of the famous Carnival of Viareggio (dating back to 1873), and its papier-mâché floats, which (since 1925), parade along the promenade known as "Passeggiata a mare", in the weeks of Carnival. The symbol of the carnival of Viareggio and its official mask is Burlamacco, designed and invented by Uberto Bonetti in 1930. Viareggio is also an active industrial and manufacturing center; its shipbuilding industry has long been renowned around the world and its fishing and floricultural industries are still fundamental sectors in the city's economy.
