Monastero degli Olivetani (Lecce) is a monastic complex in the city of Lecce. It was founded in the late 12th century by Tancredi d’Altavilla. It is currently home to the Department of Historical Studies of the University of Salento.
Pizzica is a popular Italian folk dance, originally from the Salento peninsula and later spreading throughout all the Puglia and Calabria regions and eastern Basilicata. The traditional pizzica is danced while embracing a partner. This hug need not necessarily involve two individuals of opposite sexes, and often two women can be seen dancing together.
Accompanying persons and students are welcome; the cost of the gala dinner is € 55
