Folklore and tradition of the upper Molise

From: Sunday, July 29, 2018

scapoli-festival-bagpipe-internationalOn Sunday, July 29 in Scapoli, one of the most beautiful and suggestive medieval villages in Italy, the 44th edition of the International Bagpipe Festival will be held. It’s a very important event that attracts pipers from around the world to play various types of bagpipes throughout alleys and squares packed with people.

This instrument, used by shepherds, was already known by the ancient Romans who called it “utriculus”, which means small and skinny, for its characteristic bag that serves as a reserve of air and allows a continuous sound without interruptions.

festival-scapoli-bagpipeWalking through the streets of the small town you will arrive at the characteristic “Mostra Mercato”, a landmark of traditional folk music in Europe. This important cultural event is an opportunity to learn about the customs, traditions, and history as well as cultural comparisons. It promotes artisan handiwork and is a meeting point for ethnomusicologists, eminent personalities, and illustrious foreign scholars.

There will also be food and wine stands where you can taste and learn about typical local dishes prepared with care by the local residents for this important occasion.

Make sure to visit the International Bagpipe Museum which holds various types of bagpipes from all over the world.
