Carnevale Viareggio Parade: Giant Spider

Next favorite float…seeing this giant spider float from a distance was amazing!!! The choreographed movements of the matrix-like actors coupled with the music was so surreal. The video ends with lots of confetti…there was so much confetti that day and much of it went home with me, on me.

The official name of the float is “La Rete” by Alessandro Avanzini. The head is purposely shaped like a mouse and the cold, metallic, cyborg-like construction is a purposeful commentary on the unlimited information on the web including the proliferation of consumerism and access to personal data.
