San Salvo - Songs for the Pasquetta / I cantori di Pasquetta
The ancient song will be heard again through the streets, singers will go from house to house "Noi veniamo questa sera con una nuova più che vera. Dommattina è la Pasquetta che sia santa e benedetta". And in the end the request for a gift "Date a noi un gallinaccio, o salsicce o sanguinaccio, o prosciutto o mortadella o buon cacio e scamorzella. Noi di qui non ce ne andremo se di doni non ne avremo". These beautiful traditions made every festivity more joyous for everybody.
