The masters of the Acesi papier- mache are grouped in cultural associations to which the Foundation entrusts a shed for the construction of the wagon. Each construction site (both those who build the first category floats and those who build the second ones) thus have their own space at their disposal, where they begin to work several months before the Carnival without respite.

All construction sites are located in the Carnival Citadel , north of the city of Acireale. It is here that papier-mâché floats and flowered floats come to life every year.
It is here that every year the marvelous works of art created by the Acesi masters are reborn, together with ingenuity and art.
Each construction site contains many specific skills to create every part of the wagon, from the sketch drawing, to the movements, to the modeling, to the coloring.
