The Battle of the Oranges is a food fight festival celebrated in the Italian city of Ivrea in the month of February each year.
The festival follows a tradition of throwing oranges on each other in organized groups. The people are divided into nine groups and they throw oranges at each other on the carnival days of Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.
At the end of the three days fighting, prizes are given to those who have shone in terms of loyalty, technique and ardour.
If you’re visiting Ivrea with your friends or family members during this time, you’d not want to miss out on this.
