A Carnival worthy of the name cannot conclude without the feast in Penìa, guided by the association "Grop de la Mèscres de Dèlba e Penìa", custodian of the ancient rites of the Ladin Carnival. In the square of the small hamlet at the foot of the Marmolada, from 2.00 to 4.00 p.m., Mardi Gras is celebrated by the masks with musics, games and entertainment. In case of bad weather, the event will take place by the former elementary school in Alba.
