The most colorful and "fat" party of the year is approaching and FICO Eataly World already has events, initiatives and gastronomic proposals ready to guarantee everyone a tailor-made Carnival, in terms of taste and celebrations. Throughout the month it will still be possible to twirl on the ice skating rink - set up indoors and powered by solar energy - and every weekend in February a lot of space will be dedicated to entertainment for the little ones thanks to the evocative fairy-tale mix between creative paths and the initiatives of the Chocolate Factory (February 4 and 5) and the Return to Neverland (February 11-12, 18-19, 25-26): two realms of fairy tales that mix to give an unforgettable day of play and fun for children who will celebrate Carnival in the Food Park. All the girls and boys who visit FICO in costume will also be able to participate in the traditional "Search for Carnival Sweets" by stopping in the restaurants and kiosks of the Park to receive typical carnival sweets and candies of every variety. On Saturday 18 February, children will also be able to show off their costumes on the occasion of the great Carnival Ball scheduled at the central Arena of the Park.
Providing a tasty backdrop to masks and confetti, of course, will be FICO's wide range of food and wine with many typical dishes and sweets that will tell the story of Carnival traditions from all over Italy, tasting tours and cooking courses for everyone, as well as the Park's 20 attractions including the multimedia pavilions and the traditional puppets made by the Fano Carnival and displayed in the Area dei Dolci.
In addition, on Sunday 19 February, from 12 noon to 4 p.m. in the Arena, there will be a free, guided tasting of three types of hazelnut creams. The creams that will "parade" and compete against each other are Baratti & Milano Hazelnut Cream, Maison della Nocciola's Gianduia Cream and Frutta & Bacche's 100% organic Hazelnut Cream.
In addition to the activities in the thematic areas of FICO, there will also be the aerial acrobatics and light shows of 'ÉVEIL', the not-to-be-missed show of Les Farfadais, one of the world's most popular nouveau cirque companies. After the sell-out recorded during their first Italian show hosted precisely at FICO, by popular demand on 17, 18, and 19 February, the Park's Congress Centre will once again become a huge magic box in which the impossible can happen, with acrobatics at 7 metres in height, video-mapping, and jaw-dropping acts.
