The first of March 2019 will be the 489th friday gnocolarHistoryThe festival originates from an uprising of the people against the bakers in Verona in 1530 following a terrible famine, caused by a sudden flooding of the Adige and aggravated by the sack of the Germanic troops that crossed the Veronese, after the Peace of Cambrai .To sedate the hungry population were elected some probi citizens, including the doctor Tommaso da Vico , so that they could feed the citizenship with the proceeds of duties on chestnuts and olives. This episode took the name of gnoccolare and took place on the last Friday of Carnival , the day when bread , wine , flour , butter and cheese were distributed in the Piazza San Zeno of the populous city district. The da Vico, who lived in a street in the neighborhood, left a legacy in his will to annually procure food for the people that Friday.From this recurrence come the Bacanal del Gnoco and the figure of Papa del Gnoco , typical Veronese mask
