Carnival in Italy, a Festival of Wines and Foods

Every region in Italy is its own small world, with distinct customs, traditions — even local languages which can have different tones within a few kilometers — and their own distinct cuisines as well. During the year, various regional events celebrate the richness and range of Italian foods. The most significant occasions are holidays such as Christmas, Easter and the celebration of the saint patron of a town, a village or even a big city.  And a pagan festival such as Carnival is also celebrated at the table with great pleasure.
