Carnevale, the traditional pre-lenten party, has a multi-faceted and distinguished tradition in many parts of Italy. Perhaps the most illustrious is the Carnevale di Venezia (the Carnival of Venice) with its fabulous masks, elaborate costumes and exclusives private parties. In other areas of Italy you will find parades, floats and other imaginative ways of celebrating this event. Each year the ICS puts on a bash for its members and partners.
