The Frascati Carnival is one of the most anticipated events in all of Lazio and is organized in a dozen days of celebration with the parades of traditional masks. The procession opens with the carriage of the King of the Carnival, which carries with it the keys of the city. The program includes masked and flash-mob events.
At the end of the event, Pulcinella’s cremation is the highlight of the party that captures everyone’s attention and during which arrays of colours and lights are projected onto the facade of the Town Hall. The Pulcinella is a puppet almost 5 meters high that is carried in a procession and, once it has arrived at Palazzo Marconi (seat of the Town Hall) is burned to celebrate the end of the holiday period.
