February in Italy most likely means Carnival.
We definitely couldn’t miss the opportunity to celebrate this occasion with a fun family quiz!
Carnival, or Carnevale, has been celebrated for centuries throughout Italy with huge festivals marked by parades, masquerade balls, colours, mischievous pranks and tasty sweet fritters.
It is a time for children and grown ups to dress up in fancy costumes, throw confetti at each other, laugh and forget their troubles.
After a difficult start to the year, we all deserve a fun celebration which brings the wonderful Italian bilingual community together. We will do this online, using technology to bring us closer and connect at a time when we have had to learn to stay physically distanced.
Find a costume or make your own, wear a character mask and get ready for a family quiz all about Carnevale.
How well do you know this celebration? We will ask about traditions, typical food, history, iconic costumes and masks, so freshen up your knowledge for a chance to win a fabulous prize.
Join us on Zoom on Tuesday 16th February 2021, from 4pm GMT.
The winning family will receive a voucher worth up to £50 to be spent at The Italian Bookshop, in-store and online.
Registration is now closed.
Thank you to everyone who registered, we very much look forward to celebrating Carnevale with you!
