Every Saturday night during the period from 17th January to the Saturday after Ash Wednesday, the Carnival in Lavello is animated by “festini” (parties).

In these attractive locations, staged for the celebrations of the most anticipated period of fun, masked groups gather to dance until morning, while concealing their identity behind the “Domino”, the typical Carnival mask of Lavello.

Besides a long satin tunic, these characters wear a hood and a cape that covers their shoulder and arms. The masks are different colours, and in past times the hue varied depending on the social status of the person who wore them. The most characteristic, now and in the past, is red, which is identified in the colour of the people!
