A carnival rich in tradition and folklore, people and customs typical of Settimo past, which for some years is experiencing a revival thanks to the work of the Pro Loco and volunteers of historic group of Centro Studi Settimesi.

Among the features of the Carnival need to highlight the typical Settimo characters, the Grand Priore and the Bela Lavandera, in addition to traditional and original "Process dla Veja", recovered thanks to the Centro Studi Settimesi. Moreover the floats parade that has regained the interest of a wide audience.

The "Grand Priore" has the role of "King" of the Carnival period. Red and white are the characteristic colors: long coat, French hat, white shirt and red trousers. A figure that can be traced back to the times of Roman Saturnalia, when the "King of the Feast" was elected to organize the games for the people in the squares.

The "Bela Lavandera", a Settimo typical female figure, traces her origins, as the name suggests "beautiful laundress", to one of the activities of the past of Settimo community. It is said that, since the second part of 1800, it was customary to view each Monday a long line of wagons, filled with linen, drawn by horses, which went to Turin to get clean laundry and pick that to be delivered next week .

The "Trial of the Old" (dla Veja Process) is a real process that takes place against a symbolic old woman who embodies evil and unpleasant events occurred during the year just ended. The "Veja" is accused of all sorts of facts, she undergoes a regular process and is judged by the Grand Inquisitor and Sovrana Giuria Popolare emanating conviction or acquittal. In the case of a conviction is established the penalty to be imposed to the Veja, which may be more or less strict, depending on the fault that will be recognized.

The period of Carnival has its climax with the parade of large floats coming from different municipalities of Piedmont, the distribution of the following Sunday of polenta and sausage and the traditional Shrove Tuesday "Sin-a dle vidoe" and "dij mal-Maria" (the dinner of widows and bad-maried).
