Ronciglione and the art's faces
There are places where art and tradition are kept every day, such as a precious treasure to be protected. One of these places is Ronciglione, a small town of almost 9 thousand inhabitants in the province of Viterbo, where every corner is breathed in ancient traditions, rich in creativity, renewed each year. And Ronciglione's creativity rhymes with Carnival; This is the great attraction of the place, which sees all the inhabitants busy night and day, for work or for passion, to always create something new and spectacular.
The ways of creative art
Starting from Corso Umberto I, you can not come to the 12th in the workshop of Daria Chiricozzi, a daughter of art, one that this craft and Carnival has in the DNA. For years now, beside bracelets, handbags and purses, there are colorful papier-masks, which seem to come out of some of the theatricals for their beauty. Continuing along the same road is Felice Scialanca, an artisan who produces leather shoes and riding boots. And in fact, getting into his studio the odor from which he gets intoxicated is just that of leather and glue. Citizens who are dedicated to Empty Races can not fail to move from this address.
Carpenter and foam: all the faces of the Carnivale Rococo
A few steps away, in via del Crocifisso, you can stop at the Colonna's tailor's shop, a place that is a leap back to 1960; Here, in fact, when dozens of Frac and Tight were sewn, nowadays much less but it is a must-see step not only to secure the most beautiful masks of the Carnival, but also for the gala nights and for the elegant vision of the Nasi Society Rossi. Finally moving to A. Gramsci Street, there is the Flash firm, a creative lab where polystyrene and foam rubber work.
The creative atmosphere is breathing in the provincial area
And for those who were not satisfied yet and would like to breathe in full the atmosphere behind the scenes of the carnival, moving a few miles from the town center, there is a 'magic' shed where creative fantasy comes to life: paperhead, foam , Polystyrene and colors fill every corner. An artistically interesting situation where at all times of day and night it is easy to come across craftsmen or simply enthusiasts who for work or pleasure choose this place to give birth to the allegorical wagons, the soul of this carnival.
