La pizzica: tradizione, abiti e manifestazioni

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
