Carnevale di Viareggio

By Isis Wozniakowska (California State University in Florence)

The first thing I noticed when I entered the parade area of Viareggio were the numerous floats sitting in their places on the sidelines. The second thing I noticed… was how many of the floats were political. That’s not to say its a bad thing to have a political focus it just seems surprising to an American like me that such a celebratory time known for a good lack of inhibitions would be so sprinkled with political commentary. Take the follow photos, for example:

Queen Elizabeth all packed up to leave the EU
