Confetti | Alexandre Dumas, 1844

Δημήτρης Γιαννουκάκης (1898 – 1991), Kαρναβάλι

“Piazza del Popolo presented a spectacle of gay and noisy mirth and revelry.
A crowd of masks flowed in from all sides, emerging from the doors, descending
from the windows. From every street and every corner drove carriages filled with clowns,
harlequins, dominoes, mummers, pantomimists, Transteverins, knights, and peasants,
screaming, fighting, gesticulating, throwing eggs filled with flour, confetti, nosegays, attacking.”

 Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo, 1844
