The CarnevalMarlia exists since the early years of the 20th century and the first event seems to date back to 1904, although the first photographs have only been realized in the 20s, because the first evidence showing, of course, in black and white, a crowd around something that must have been one of the first cars seen in the area.
More photos of the '30s, '40s and '50s witness the construction of real Floats in paper mache. In recent times the CarnevalMarlia has grown a lot with bigger floats, movement and colors that were not used in the past.
This year's edition is necessarily downsized, there are no floats parading, because of the fire that partially destroyed the shed where they were set up, but to keep the tradition of the carnival alive and entertain children, a masked party is organized on the square, with Disco Music with the 'DJ Simone & C', entertainment for children with baby make-up, balloon sculptures and giant soap bubbles and gifts for the little ones.
On Sunday 28th of January and Sunday 18th of February, there will also be the presence of the Magician Bolla with the dinosaurs 'Cuccioli di Carnosauro'. Also the participation of various masks from the primary schools of Marlia and Capannori, from the kindergarten school of Marlia and of the comprehensive institute Don Aldo Mei of S.Leonardo in Treponzio is scheduled, with the participation of many children, teachers and masked parents. Also the masquerade of the parish church of Marlia is in the programme.
Every Sunday, in addition, a charity fair and food stands are organized.
