Dull in imagery and contrast It's Mardi Gras in Viareggio, time for one of the continent's most elaborate Pre-Lenten Festivals. A hilarious parade of gargantuan effigies, and grotesque walking statues. There's mirth and merry-making for all. Establishing Shot: A huge float with huge comic like figures CUS - Another float has figures of Maurice Chevalier and Leslie Carrion CUS - More elaborate floats go by with horses and knights and damsels in distress
