Umbria Carnevale Season The city of Sant’Eraclio, Umbria Italy is located some 25 miles (40 kilometers) southeast of the regional capital, Perugia.┬áIts Carnevale was originated back in 1542 by the Olivetani friars of Mormonzone, who lived in a nearby convent that has long been abandoned. These forward-looking friars felt that the local populace deserved their own merry-making on the streets to balance the local gentry’s exclusive palace parties. Good for them!
