Scanno: La Serenate delle Chezette

5 January @ 21:30 - 23:30 CET

La Serenate delle Chezette

La Serenate delle Chezette is busking Scanno style. Through a simple serenade, your reward is a meal and company in the deep dark winter. It takes place on the eve of Epiphany (5th Jan), villagers hang up a sock and sing this traditional folk song called the ‘Chezette’ (begging in dialect)  and ‘Canto del fiore’ (a song traditionally sung to your betrothed) under the windows of the girls & women of the town until there is the promise of a delicious dish or ingredients.   The next day the singers go and collect the fruits of their serenade and two days later the donors and the singers go to a local restaurant and with much love eat together!
