Every year thousands flock to celebrate the Carnival of Viareggio, held in Tuscany.

The annual event, which reportedly attracted more than 800,000 guests a year, regularly attracts visitors from the world over due to its rich history of incredibly detailed floats which comprise the centerpiece of the celebrations.

The main characteristic of the event sees a parade of floats and masks of influential people such as sportsmen and politicians.

Last year's iteration saw US President Donald Trump lampooned with a massive exhibit in which he was dressed in the regalia of a Roman emperor.

And this year it was the turn of soccer superstar Ronaldo to be the centre of attention.

The Portugal and Juventus star was depicted as a huge robot covered in armour, simulating a kind of Iron Man at the festival.

The silver figure was also partially animated, which only made it even more awe-inspiring as it stood tall with foreboding grey clouds as its backdrop.
