On March 3, 2019, the traditional Battle of Oranges, the main event of the Ivrean Carnival (Carnevale d’Ivrea), took place in Ivrea, Italy La Sentinella reported that 500 tons of oranges were brought from Sicily for the battle.

According to one of the legends, the girl Violet killed the local ruler, who wanted to take advantage of the tradition and spend with her “first wedding night” when she married. Now the oranges symbolize the cut head of the duke, and the orange color is the symbol of the rebels who saved the girl from the guards.
