Carnevale in Via Reggio -Art reflects larger than life..
Carnevale has come and gone for 2012 but the most extraordinary manifestation of this
traditional festival is in Via Reggio , Tuscany with a procession of floats each more amazing than the last.
Its oversized - decidedly irreverent with spectators share the jokes as they spot the famous Italian or infamous ones!
The movement sequences of each float are even more marvellous knowing each movement is achieved through the local volunteers operating a series of mechanical pulleys and levers inside the body of the carts and given the procession lasts for hours these operators are the unsung heroes of this uncompromising and enduring spectacle
