I don’t think there were as many floats in Carnevale Viareggio this year, but the quality was excellent.
After the Trump float, my favourite was the Walking Dead. At first it just looked like a group of zombies, but a closer look revealed something else.
From under the rubble under the huge fractured face came hands and arms then bodies…people emerging from destruction.
They then tried to climb over a wall into Europe, but the barrier moved upwards to prevent them doing so.
The meaning of some of the others was more obscure, for me anyway. I loved the jungle with books as tree trunks, but I am unsure of the message…any thoughts?
The ensemble in front did a great job and their costumes were fabulous.
There were 2 floats commenting on the state of arctic regions.
Poor Renzi got picked on a couple of times.
The next one was impressive. I love the green aliens.
This one was quite small. I don’t know who are the characters playing Romulus and Remus.
The next one is an American bison being followed closely by China. Make of it what you will.
I don’t know the characters represented in this float.
This one takes from the Venice Carnevale.
Here is the big, bad wolf.
A colourful tree with a message?
A lady in green and pink.
A walking garden.
There is always room for a semi naked woman.
I will leave with these 2 characters as they make their way off.
No doubt the floats are already being dismantled to make way for next year’s designs. I hope to be back to see them.
