Italian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Latin carnem levāre ("take away/remove meat"). Compare Old Italian carnasciale ("carnival") from carnem laxāre, Romanian cârneleagă from carnem ligat, and Spanish carnestolendas (three days preceding the beginning of Lent) from carnis tollendus. Other theories suggest it comes from Latin carnealis ("meaty").

Noun[edit]

carnevale m (plural carnevali)

  1. carnival; festival in the week before Lent
