29 Hours in Milano - A Carnivale Parade

Theoretically Carnivale ended at midnight of February 5th but as I was walking down Corso Vittorio Emanuale on Ash Wednesday morning this little procession was wending its way down the street.

And I'd love to know what the young lad with the Michelin man legs was suppose to be. Maybe the Michelin Man??? Duh???
