“Gli Araldi della Regina” – The Heralds of the Queen are a association of Ivrea that is preparing all year long for the most important event – the carnival of Ivrea. The carnival of Ivrea is the oldest historical carnival in Italy, one of the best known and most visited. It is famous for the “Battle of the Oranges, which takes place for three days in the main city squares, a moment of great involvement and strong emotion, re-enactment of the popular rebellion against tyranny.”
The artist had the honor to decorate the carneval cart of “The Heralds of the Queen” for 2019s carnival edition and therefore was inspired to paint a scene of the battle on canvas.
