Cocullo - Next Thursday in Cocullo for San Domenico / A Cocullo giovedì la processione di San Domenico
Thousands of tourists each year come to the small village of Cocullo for the traditional snake-charmers' event. The statue of the Saint will be carried in a procession covered with snakes, which must not cover his eyes, or it will be bad omen. The faithful will pull the chain of a bell with their teeth, to be protected against toothache, and leave Cocull walking backwards, always facing the village. In Pretoro too a representation for San Domenico is due.
