Scoppito - All guests at the Capullis' / In tanti alla tradizionale polentata dei Capulli
Like every year since immemorial time the Capulli family on San Fabiano's day prepares a giant "polentata". The tradition, repeated to exorcise calamities, seems to have originated either from a vow, or from the feudal custom for rich lords to offer food to the village people. The giant pot will be where according to the legend the ancestor was born.
