    Frascati, Italy.

    Various shots of people in fancy dress costume and wearing enormous model heads, leaping about and having fun in a carnival procession. A large group of people wearing white clown suits and pointy hats jig about. Huge crowds of people watch the carnival. Floats decorated with huge models of chefs, clowns, butchers (?), horses, and devils (?) drive through the town. Confetti-covered people in the crowd jump up and down.
