The orange throwing festival takes place in Ivrea, a town in North Italy. It is the largest food fight in Italy and the surrounding area. The origins of the festival are unclear but it is said that it symbolizes the revolt against the tyrannous Count Ranieri of Biandrate. Among his many vices was lust for young women and he allegedly deflowered the young brides on their wedding night.
