The Historical Carnival of Ivrea is a carnival event institutionalized in 1808 based on ancient local parties and that since then takes place almost continuously in the homonymous city of Piedmont.

In relation to its tradition and to the events celebrated during the festival, mixing references to the Napoleonic army and popular uprisings, including the Tuchinaggio, which took place in Canavese in medieval times, its official name is "Historical Carnival Ivrea. "

The Carnival of Ivrea is characterized mainly by the dense folkloric ceremonial complex of historical and legendary evocations, for the spectacular "Battle of oranges" which has become the icon itself of the Carnival and the widespread custom of wearing a red cap (which invites not to be targeted by the orange throws).
