Nice and the fabulous Rio Carnival

Carnaval de Rio exhibition in NiceThis Massena museum, museum of history and art of Nice, in addition to its fascinating permanent collections, offers an exhibition on the Rio Carnival. And, know it, it is also a way of approaching the history of the carnival of Nice.

Indeed, Nice being a winter resort, received Emperor Pedro II of Brazil in 1888. And Pedro II was under the spell of the Nice carnival and its famous battle of flowers. On his return to Brazil, he intervened so that the carnival of Rio is inspired by that of Nice.
And now, the Carnival of Nice and that of Rio have become the most famous of all carnivals.
