3) “The tarantata between the authentic villages: Copertino and Galatina”

A do ta pizzicatu la tarantella?

It was the common question that asked who had been bitten by the taranta. Tarantism is a hysterical cultural syndrome found in Salento caused by the bite of the taranta. Those who were bitten by this spider, according to the cultural tradition, had to undergo a musical-therapeutic ritual to find the right combination of vibrations and musical notes. The tarantati were taken to the chapel of Saint Paul to drink the well water to find healing.
With this tour we want to make you relive the vibrations of the Salento folkore between dances and popular sounds, immersing ourselves in the spirit of Salento.
