For the Carnival festivity, the second grade children have recovered the ancient popular tradition of the Magnin. The Magnin were men who, in the time of the great-grandparents, went from house to house to repair the pots of the ladies. Their faces were stained with ashes and they walked around the town beating pots to attract people. To revive the tradition, the children soiled their faces with a burnt cork and walked around Montà singing the typical Magnin song. They also did folk dancing accompanied by guitar.
