Carnevale is the day before Ash Wednesday, the last day to "celebrate" before the season of Lent begins. I am happy to see that at school Carnevale is still a bigger festivity among the kids than Halloween. (Although, each year I have been here in Rome, there seems to be more and more things happening on October 31st!)

Here are a few pictures from the Carnevale celebration at Ambrit Rome International School. This is a Grade 1 class in their costumes.

The children from the Early Childhood division of the school parade through the atrium while older students stand above on the balconies throwing streamers.
